Aubrey Stevens and the Haven Road Cottage

Aubrey Stevens at the Haven Road Dutch Cottage.

On the back of the photo is written, A.Stevens on an early reconnaissance mission.

In the early 1970s the Dutch Cottage in Haven Road was in a very poor state of repair as shown in this photo lent to us by Graham Stevens. In it his father Aubrey is showing just how bad the situation had become. A number of other Canvey notables including Dot Shaw and Ray Howard and others supported a campaign started by Fred McCave to help save the building. You can read more about this successful campaign here.
