About the Area:
The isle of Sheppey is an island off the northern coast of Kent, England, neighbouring the Thames Estuary, centred 42 miles from central London.
it has an area of 36 square miles. The island forms part of the local government district of Swale. Sheppey is derived from Old English Sceapig, meaning “Sheep island”.
Today’s island was historically known as the “isles of Sheppey” which were Sheppey itself, the isle of Harty to the south east and the isle of Elmley to the south west. Over time the channels between the islands have silted up to make one continuous island.
Sheppey, like much of north Kent, is largely formed from London Clay and is a plentiful source of fossils.
The Mount near Minster rises to 250 feet above sea level and is the highest point on the island. The rest of Sheppey is low-lying and the southern part of the island is marshy land criss-crossed by inlets and drains, largely used for grazing.
The Kingsferry Bridge was first built in 1860, thus eliminating the need for ferries. Over time, there have been four bridges built over the Swale at this point. All bridges had to allow sufficient clearance for shipping heading to the commercial docks at Ridham.
