I recently took a chance and purchased a photo slide magazine featuring photos of Essex including some of Canvey Island. The slides appear to be from around 1980 and I was delighted to find some rare views of Canvey buildings since gone. Below are a collection of some of the slides although they haven’t scanned very well. Descriptions have been added. More details of the Lighthouse can be found HERE.

Great find Dave
lovely to see the Oysterfleet Lighthouse building, heard about it so often, but never seen it.. what a lovely building and such a shame it was demolished.
What a disgrace that the unique ‘Lighthouse’ house was destroyed. An act of vandalism! How did our council disgracefully allow this historic building to disappear from our community? Does anyone know who actually tore it down?
