October – Canvey Island Transport Museum Open Day

Every year the Bus Transport Museum (situated next to Leigh Beck School on Canvey) holds an open day where visitors can get a feel of what period bus travel would feel like and also get a taste of a modern day market! At the market, BTP Liam and I were fortunate enough to met the famous Janet Penn and Angela Owen who had a stall there dedicated to the website CanveyIsland.org. Liam and I bought a few items and had a brief chat before looking around the rest of the stalls.

We came across a model ‘city’ when were there which was rather interesting!

Next door to the museum is Leigh Beck School. The grounds were covered in period cars and it was a trip down memory lane for me and Liam!

Once you had looked around the market and Leigh Beck you could get onto one of the buses and go to the seafront where they had a much more bigger selection of period buses, cars and army vehicles.
