Don't need wellies on a nice summer`s day.   Make sure the tide has been out for a couple of hours and stay off the wet/shiney bits.

If you go, take a tape measure and measure the diameter of the ring on the BOP please :)
Maybe it's big horse I'm a Londoner. :{

From a walk along there today it now looks like the generator building and second half of the main building has (mostly) joined the others on the beach now.

Particularly when compared with the images on this link http://www.discoveringfossils.co.uk/isle_of_sheppey_fossils.htm

The BOP and the Main Building were camouflaged as houses

Did a bit more digging :)

I think the ? could be the TX antenna or it was on the BOP and the RX was at the CHL
If ? was the TX then maybe the cupola on the BOP was for a range finder?

If anyone has contact details for Fletchers Caravan Park nearby can they pass them along, we should be able to arrange a visit there on the same day too!

It was worse when it was half way up as the tilt wasnt so bad and it made the dizzy feeling really bad like too much Fosters :(

Many many thanks for these pictures, me and my younger brother used to walk from Leysdown up to the large building, the land underneath was giving way even then 1965 ish!
We would stand on the roof and look out to the post far out to sea, things were so much more simple in those days.
The tide went out for what seemed like miles to us, we would disappear from our parents for hours only coming back when we were starving for food. We stayed at a chalet camp every year for many many years, I will always remember Leysdown and Sheerness with fond memories, two weeks every years of heaven.

    thankyou thankyou         Kevin
