Even in recent timeframes the local area has changed significantly and one example is Orchard Street. I believe land was retained to allow for a bypass to be built avoiding the centre of Rainham but when this plan was cancelled the land was then redeveloped.

The photo below from 2001 shows the old Lukehurst warehouse with the green wall and corrugated tin roof and car sales yard before the site was cleared to build the new flats
