News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Naval Bombing Decoy N12/Vl1

A Second World War Bombing decoy located at Binney Farm on Allhallows Marshes. It was built as part of the 'N-series' of naval decoys to deflect enemy bombing from Chatham Dockyard. This was a 'QF' decoy and is referenced as being in use between August 1941 and March 1942, but could have been active throughout the rest of the war. By 1978 the site had been given over to agricultural use and no features of the decoy survive.
