Does anyone know
These pictures were sent to me by Gordon Gwilliams he spent holidays with his parents on Canvey in the 50’s and from his description of nissen huts painted black and partitioned inside sounds like it could be very early Thorney Bay Camp.
He remembers looking across the water towards the Oil Refinery, from the beach, which one would assume was the oil and gas tanks. The pictures show his parents and other members of his family sitting on what Gordon believes is Canvey Seawall.
We have had some discussion about this and we are struggling to confirm if this is or is not Canvey. Perhaps it is on one of the other Islands. One possibility we have come up with is down by the Lobster Smack.
Any thoughts please, Gordon would be grateful for any help.
