The jury in the body behind the bank murder case went to Folkestone this morning to see the crime scene.
The 12 members – together with barristers, police officers and Judge Adele Williams – travelled by coach from Canterbury to the back of Europa House in Sandgate Road.
It was there that homeless Tim Clayton died from his injuries on November 9 last year.
The prosecution has claimed that forensic tests showed it matched Mr Clayton’s blood.
Sharp was arrested as he and his lover Samantha Allen were returning from a trip to the pub on Sunday November 10.
"He’s a waste of space. It’s ABH, I never used a weapon.”
Sharp is alleged to have replied:”This is serious s***. I didn’t kill him.”
Ms Allen has claimed that Sharp hated Mr Clayton “with a vengeance” because of his relationship with Allen.
Prosecutor Ian Hope told the jury:“The Crown says that, fuelled by alcohol, Sharp set upon Mr Clayton and, driven by rage and jealousy, then subjected him to a vicious beating, involving repeated punches and kicking.”
He claimed the blows were so severe they caused severe injuries to the victim and led to his death.
The trial continues.
