TR0563 : Graveney Hill

taken 11 years ago, near to Graveney, Kent, Great Britain

Graveney Hill
Graveney Hill
All of 9 metres above sea level, it doesn't take much to make a hill on the marsh. Recent rain and snow has left this corner water-logged. I think the crop is rape. The white building is close to Cleve Farm TR0463. There was a locally opposed proposal to build a huge substation for the London Array off-shore windfarm hereabouts at the time I took the photo but apparently Shell have now pulled out of the project. Shell had an equal share in the project with power firm E.On and Denmark's Dong energy so I assume, unless another investor can be found, the scheme is now on hold if it hasn't been abandoned altogether.
