We already had that info Graham. You must have missed it.

Yes Jan shortly after I'd made the comment I thought the name was vaguely familiar so I had a look back but still wasn't sure whether the name Longwick applied specifically to the farm or just the area. Also as can be seen in the latest comments we've had a very well-informed comment on the eel-boats/ballast idea so I'll back-paddle on that part of my comment on that page. Sorry Liam, ''quote--misquote!''

Hah no problem, thanks a lot, we hope to have a better investigation of Pantile at a later date.

Hello I was looking at an old map of Canvey dated 1777. It shows a group of three buildings where Pantile farm was but with no name. Tree house is named on the same map though. Curiously the same map shows Waterside farm as "Waterhouse" Regards Sparrow

Does anyone know the name of the farm that once existed just north of Long Road and opposite where the junction now is with Thorney Bay Road,I remember it was a working farm in the 1940's.I was under the impression it was Chimney Farm but I may be wrong.All traces of it disappeared when the housing estate was built from the late 1950's.

The Bishops, my Mothers Brothers, used to go there for Hay and Staw etc, I have always understood it was called Whites Farm.
