Dig out your old photos of harbour
People are being asked to uncover old photos of Northfleet
The site, a few miles upstream of Gravesend just before
Swanscombe Peninsular, is being restored to former glory, but while
bad weather is holding up digging, Northfleet Harbour Restoration
Trust wants to see how it looked before the 1980s.
Conrad Broadley said: “Any pictures of the harbour from before
the 1980s will be of immense value building up an overall picture
of how it used to look; these could be of fishing off the harbour
walls, playing on the beach, moored boats, the local pubs or even
visiting by boat.
“We are also interested in personal accounts of the harbour in
It is hoped the site could be home to hundreds of vessels as
well as offering boat sales, repairs and a whole maritime leisure,
sporting and heritage industry.
Photos can be sent by email to email@example.com or by
post to 80 Dover Road, Northfleet, Kent DA11 9QD. To find out more
