Weirs/Waterfalls

Sheerness in 1203 was Scerhnesse which probably comes from scir naess "bright/clear headland". An alternative derivation may be from scear "plough" which is the shape of the Isle of Sheppey. Sheppey derives from "sheep island" and is separated from the mainland by the Swale ("rushing water"), an arm of the sea/Thames.

Sheppey sheep  River/marsh
Sheppey sheep still here. The approach to Sheppey is mostly flat and featureless land.

Sheppey crossing
This very elegant curving motorway crosses the Swale, although it was not open at the time.

Sheerness town centre
Town centre, pleasant and friendly atmosphere, and not developed into blandness like so many places.

Sheerness town centre top end
Top end of high street, leading to park and seafront at left

Park railings seating area
Entrance to park, with thoughtful rear-shaped railings to invite sitters

Park history plaques
The grassy area has many of these little plaques with interesting history-bites

Park sandpit playground
Sandpit cum playground. But where does the rain go, and how do they prevent the sand going down the plughole? I suspect the outer lower ring is for drainage.

Sheerness beach looking west
Leaving the sandpit, cross the car park and climb the steps to the sea wall.

Sheerness beach looking east
The sea wall is stepped, so there is plenty of smooth warm sitting space

Sheerness steel structure
This may be a Sheerness praying mantis, but who knows? Hopefully vegetarian, and trained only to graze the verges and municipal greens.
