One of two octagonal Dutch cottages (built for Dutch workers) from the 17th century which are preserved on Canvey Island. This cottage now functions as a museum. Canvey Island is a civil parish and reclaimed island in the Thames estuary in England. It is separated from the mainland of south Essex by a network of creeks. Lying only just above sea level it is prone to flooding at exceptional tides, but has nevertheless been inhabited since the Roman invasion of Britain.

The Canvey Island Monster - The Canvey Island Monster is the name given to an unusual creature that washed up on the shores of Canvey Island, England, in November, 1953. A second carcass was discovered in August, 1954. The 1953 specimen was described as being 2.4ft long with thick reddish brown skin, bulging eyes and gills. It was also described as having hind legs with five-toed horseshoe-shaped "feet". Sorry - looks like a basking shark to me!
