Foot crossing on the C2C line
The construction of the London, Tilbury & Southend Railway was authorised by Parliament on 17th June 1852 and extended in stages. The section here from Horndon to Leigh-on-Sea opened on 1st July 1855. The line reached Southend on 1st March 1856 and finally to Shoeburyness in 1884.

This foot crossing is just east of Benfleet station but according to notices posted next to it Network Rail are intending to take it out of use. A train bound for Shoeburyness has just passed over the crossing, which has quite poor sightlines.
