The Ferry Crossing viewed from Canvey Island

Post Cards of the Benfleet Creek Crossing

By David Bullock

Here we are looking from Canvey Island waiting for the Ferry Boat to take us back to the main land (South Benfleet). If the tide was out you could walk accross the stepping stones, three of which are located down Long Road at the former Council Offices.
