About Canvey Island

Canvey Island itself is both an island and a town that can be found in the Thames Estuary, near Southend, with road bridges crossing the creeks that separate it from the rest of Essex.

Canvey Island Local Post (CILP), meanwhile, badges itself as a “private non-commercial local post”, dedicated “to the promotion of Cinderella stamps, postcard collecting, modern local posts (philopoly) and the history and development of Canvey Island”, and has operated since 2010.

Most recently, new issues were released throughout 2023 after CILP took a production break for over a year.

The well-maintained website at canveypost.org features regular news updates and a full catalogue of past issues up to 2021.
