TQ8582 : The Leigh Deposit marker-buoy

taken 6 years ago, 4 km from Westcliff-on-Sea, Southend-on-Sea, Great Britain

The Leigh Deposit marker-buoy
The Leigh Deposit marker-buoy
Marking a shoal in mid-river, about midway between the mouth of Yantlet Creek (on the Kentish side) and Chalkwell Oaze on the Essex shore. Seen here from onboard the paddle steamer 'Waverley', bound for Tilbury.

The buoy is clearly visible in satellite imagery, and I was able to read off grid co-ordinates using 'Where's the path?'.
