Grain Beach, Isle of Grain

Grain Beach is located along the B2001 (Grain Road), at the far end of the High Street. At this point, there is a car park only yards from a path that leads down to the beach or, if feeling more adventurous, around the site of the old Grain Fort. Beyond that, there are long walks along sea walls, with views to Sheerness and, in the middle of River Medway, the Grain Tower Battery. Back on the beach, and depending on what the weather is like, there are some good views of Shoeburyness and Southend-on-Sea across the mouth of the Thames! The photographs below were taken on Sunday morning, when there were only a few people enjoying the mud flats (photographed below), making for a very peaceful and relaxing morning.
