  • I lived at the point from 1967 to 1974 and this concrete barge was a favourite boyhood play area. It was a base of operations, a catapult firing range and an all-round load of fun.
    I think it was originally floated there to try and seal a breach in the wall, but got stranded and left there.

  • I have the feeling is was a Mulberry Harbour which was used by the Canvey Canoe club until the flood. My father, George Chambers, was a member. When he woke up that night, he worried that it was this that beached the sea wall.
