The Decoy Fleet in September, seen from the old seawall behind Egypt Bay
The Decoy Fleet in September, seen from the old seawall behind Egypt Bay
The fleets of the North Kent marshes originated as tidal creeks draining into the Thames, in days before the building of the seawall. Of the present-day fleets, the Decoy Fleet is the largest - representing the remains of a wide tidal creek which once reached the river at (what is now) Egypt Bay.

The view on this September evening was dim and misty. Only a limited area of open water can be seen, with much of the fleet occupied by reed-beds. The lie of the land is clearer in a spring shot: TQ7878 : The Decoy Fleet in May, seen from the old seawall behind Egypt Bay taken from much the same spot.
