Derelict jetty on the Thames shore, above Lower Hope Point
An older view of this structure has been contributed by Robin Webster TQ7178 : Mysterious old jetty, Cliffe Marshes, 1998. It lies about a mile downstream (NNE) from Cliffe Creek, a few hundred yards short of Lower Hope Point. As Robin Webster has suggested, there can be little doubt that the jetty was built to serve the explosive works just inland. The remains of what appear to be two similar jetties can be seen a short distance downstream: TQ7179 : The Thames below Lower Hope Point, with derelict jetty and TQ7279 : A remote point on the marsh coast of North Kent.

This shot was taken rather late on a February afternoon, but you can still make out the abundant growth of lichens along the concrete seawall. Yellow lichen also grows in abundance on the ruins of the explosives factory: TQ7178 : Ruins of the explosives works, near Lower Hope Point (1).
