The Langdon visitor centre now stands at the start of Third Avenue.

Approximately half way along on the left, and before the incline is The Haven, the last surviving plotland property. Built in the 1930s and saved from demolition by Basildon Development Corporation, it is now a museum, having been officially opened by the corporation's own chairman Dame Elizabeth Coker in May 1984.

On the same side as The Haven there is still evidence of a concrete footpath though much is now covered by undergrowth.
