Yantlet Creek
Yantlet Creek
The green fence is around the top of the sluices which control the drainage from Allhallows Marshes. In the distance are the storage tanks for the oil-fired Grain power station.

The stone in the foreground may look like a gravestone but the text on it is: "Southern Water Authority, Kent Division. This stone commemorating the completion of the raising of the Thames Flood Defences between 1975 - 1985 was unveiled by Mr H.J.L. Harris, chairman, Regional Land Drainage Committee on the 1st May 1986".

In fact only a few yards away there is a memorial stone to "Geoffrey John Hammond, artist, teacher, naturalist, conservationist drowned on 2 March 1975 in these waters".
