St Katherine's Church Canvey Island.

Former St Katherine's Church, Canvey Island.
And this is the former St. Katherine's Church, the first church on the island. It does not look very English, does it?  It was built in 1745, lay derelict for a while in the 1980s and has now found a new lease of life as a heritage centre. 

The population of the island when the black and white photographs of the creek below were taken was about 300. Now it is over 40,000.
