The East Creek Barrier

Pictures taken late 1970's

A barrier rarely seen and taken for granted the East Creek Barrier keeps Canvey safe from floods.

Pictures donated by John and Eileen Potter

More pictures of Canvey’s Sea defences can be seen here and more pictures from the Potter collection can be seen here.

The East Creek Barrier nearing completion

The pictures below were taken when the barrier was finished late 1970’s and they were either being tested or perhaps they were being closed because of a high tide.
