  • Isle of Grain: a fascinating other world industrial landscape.- well worth a drive by to this lonely trig. Behind security fences lies: London Thamesport - a deep water container port and former site of Kent BP oil refinery and where the casings for the Channel Tunnel were made using granite aggregate brought by ship from Glensanda in Scotland. Next door is the 2nd tallest chimney in UK of the now closed, oil burning Grain Power Station, built in the 1970s. Like nearby Kingsnorth the plant did not meet the emissions requirements of the Large Combustion Plant Directive and was required to close by 2015. Now being demolished- chimney yet to go. In 1995 a combined heat and power gas fired power station was built (by the Japanese) next to it. close by is another major installation -the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) import facility. Other curiosities are Grain Tower Battery (1860) with the address Number 1, The Thames, Sheerness ME3,guards the entrance to the Medway, built about a quarter of a mile off-shore and accessible at low tide, in WWII was used as a boom control point. The boom was a chain supporting a huge antisubmarine net across the two rivers, preventing entry by German U-boats. The Battery was available as of 2014, with a guide price of 500,000 The Isle of Grain is the landing point for the Britned undersea power cable between The Netherlands and the UK.
