Corner Club

Postby Queenslander » Thu Aug 05, 2010 2:27 pm

Hi all, I lived on Canvey in the 70's and spent many a happy hour or 2 in the Corner Club which
was down near Small Gains Corner.
Does anybody know if it is still there ? I've found a couple of references about it on the Net but
I'm not sure how up to date they are.
The owners at that time were Bill & Rose Davenport but I think they might have passed away now,
so if the club is still open, their son Peter would be running it now.
I have some great memories about my time on Canvey and love looking at it using Google Streetview
but I'm very surprised at how much looks the same as when I lived there.

Hi,

I was born on Smallgains and thats a blast the "corner Club", my dad used to take us there in the 70's, I am unsure if it is still there but i do still have family and very good friends on Canvey so i could find out.

However I do not recall this when i was growing up in the late 80's but by this time i was a monaco nut!

Thanks,

Graham
