Town of Canvey Island

Canvey Island is a town on an island of the same name in the Thames estuary in southeast England, having a population of about 40,000.  It is within the borough of Castle Point in the county of Essex.  Castle Point was formed as a local government district in 1974 by the merger of the urban districts of Canvey Island and Benfleet.

Canvey Island Jewish Community

There was a Jewish congregation on Canvey Island, which was in existance for a few years in the 1930s. In 2016, a new Jewish community was established on the island, when seven Ultra-Orthodox families from the Satmar Chasidic sect from the Stamford Hill area of North London moved to the area.
