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

The Harty Ferry
« Reply #1 on: March 07, 2009, 16:36:48 »
Took a trip out to Oare today near Faversham and had a walk around the nature reserve.
Was going to look at Oare Gunpowder Works too but they don't open till April at the weekends.

Heres some pictures from the mainland side of the Harty Ferry and of course information can be found on the Sheppey Website:

The Oare Marshes Visitor Centre which was formerly a watch house and customs outpost:
