  • Motmey Hill used to be an island. In 1923, a pumping station and sewerage installations were built on Motney Hill. It began processing waste from Rochester and Chatham, and then later Gillingham. Over the years, the works have been modernised and now it handles over 10 million gallons of effluent each day. Pleasant coastal stroll with lapping waves and black headed gulls, then rough grass round back of houses alongside solid security fence of modern water works -no access -(trap bait warning signs =equipment is watermarked against metal thieves) Trig gone according to trigpointing. Landowner confronted me on my return to the road under the 'private keep out barrier' but became friendly and interested when told about trigs -had not seen one here - but he knew of one at Keycoal Farm. I made the mistake of telling him I was headed their next to which he answered - I own that land as well and you'll be f~~~~~ trespassing there as well if you do! He was happy that i would just look at it from the ROW. Then chatted about the demolition of some of the large, visible across the estuary, Kingsnorth power station building scheduled for tomorrow.
