The factory - with its water tower - is something of a landmark along this stretch of the river. I've often seen it from the Kent bank, but on this occasion I was passing a little closer, aboard PS Waverley. Nonetheless, this remains a long-range shot, from a distance of more than 2km.

For a closer look, I recommend Stephen Richards' contribution: LinkExternal link

From the evidence of my own photograph, I'd say the more easterly block has been refurbished since 2015.
