January 1953 saw a massive flood in Canvey Island, caused by a tidal surge, which devastated the area and resulted in 58 fatalities. A St John’s Ambulance man at the scene remembers that, as it was wet and freezing weather conditions they had to break into a grocers for food and drinks, leaving an IOU for the owner. Some residents remember having to wear wellington boots for a ‘long time’.
Luckily the pub was one of the only places left dry, so workers and reporters could rest for a while and quench their thirst after all the exertion. It also served as the main headquarters for the flood effort, and a generator was employed to provide electricity. The pub’s role in this event resulted in a change of name from the Red Cow to the King Canute! A police constable at the time says that he and a Superintendent colleague drove into six inches of water, and on leaving the car the colleague stepped into an open manhole, sinking to waist height. Smiles and red faces all round. As with this type of catastrophe, the local community rallied round and helped each other assisted by the military and other services.
