Canvey Island Police Station

The staircase at the kitchen end of the building is always said to be cold, regardless of the ambient weather or time of year. There is also a story of a police constable hearing footsteps running backwards and forwards across the downstairs floor but none of his colleagues were in attendance at the station at the time. A rumour abounds (not supported by any evidence) that in the floods of January 1953 the police kept dead bodies at the afore-mentioned staircase end of the building as the water prevented transporting the corpses to the mortuary until the flood had subsided.
