Does anyone remember the old derelict "haunted" house here that we used to explore? I think its the one centre shot

Yes Dave, I was there with you. In fact to this day I often use it as one of several reference points when I try to capture what Canvey was like when chatting with friends and business colleagues. It was a real gem of a time capsule. Steve Tolton.
