Derelict jetty on the Thames shore above Lower Hope Point
Derelict jetty on the Thames shore above Lower Hope Point
The remains of three such structures can be found along this stretch of the Thames shore, and there can be little doubt that they once served the explosives factory nearby. This one is the best preserved of the three, and lies the furthest upstream.

Comparison with a photo taken three and a half years ago shows little apparent deterioration: LinkExternal link

The power station seen in the distance is at Tilbury. LinkExternal link
