Queenborough Park
Queenborough Park
A plaque in the centre of the park reads: "HMS Wildfire III Queenborough. This plaque commemorates the lives of those who died during the Second World War while stationed at this Royal Naval base. Minesweepers, including converted trawlers, operated from a pier which stood some 400 yards north of this park. Their dangerous task was to keep open the allied shipping routes by clearing mines from the Thames Estuary and English Channel. 'Let light perpetual shine upon them'".
