Hello There is a similar item in the Dutch Cottage Museum but that is described as being part of a Dutch drainage culvert. Much more exciting if it is Roman though. Regards Sparrow

It is the one at the Dutch Cottage and John there told me it was Roman. I have just checked with my friend who was with me and she agrees with me. I will check it out and change it off necessary.

Janet I'm sure on the Canvey Cyclopedia it says they are pipes Cornelius made from elm trunks, and that they can be seen at the Dutch Cottage museum. Also I think there is a strip of pics of them being excavated in the 70s from inside the cottage.

Definitely not from inside the cottage. I can find no mention of them in Dowds. I am waiting for John to get back to me.

Oops I mean there are pictures of them inside the cottage, being excavated elsewhere (think it was when a road was being done). I'm sure this was in Dowds as I remember looking at it and using it in the script for the Canvey DVD documentary
