Mysterious old jetty, Cliffe Marshes, 1998
Mysterious old jetty, Cliffe Marshes, 1998
The mysterious thing about this rather extensive wooden structure is that it has never appeared on any OS maps, at least those readily available. It was probably associated with the Cliffe Marshes explosive works, and the like were routinely omitted from maps in the past. What there is left of such things is now mapped, but this jetty seems to have been overlooked. It is still there, in much the same state as in 1998. This is not the case with the Shell Haven West Site refinery in the distance, which is now demolished.
