The last remaining artifacts from the Casino, the Horses, have been destroyed. A vehicle crashed into them at their adopted home on the seafront this week (January 2010).
You can see a video of the crash here.

If you have any memories or photos please comment below. Another piece of Canvey’s history gone…………………………
A day at the races? No a visit to the seaside
These photos were taken in 1983 of the horses that used to be outside the Casino. The horses still survive and I believe still used even though the Casino was demolished in 1993.
Please play the recording whilst viewing the pictures to get the atmosphere.
