TQ7178 : Derelict jetty on the Thames shore above Lower Hope Point

taken 3 years ago, 3 km from Cliffe, Medway, Great Britain

Derelict jetty on the Thames shore above Lower Hope Point
Derelict jetty on the Thames shore above Lower Hope Point
There are remains of three old jetties along this stretch of coast - this one being the furthest upstream and more complete than the others. All three must once have served the old explosives works that once occupied a substantial area of Cliffe Marshes. Robin Webster makes the interesting point that the jetty's existence has never been acknowledged by the OS - even though it is many years since it had any importance for national security: LinkExternal link

The other two jetties - what is left of them - can be seen here: LinkExternal link and here: LinkExternal link

The view in the present photograph is roughly NNW, with the three cranes at Mucking Tip visible (just!) on the horizon.
