Looking across Sharp's Green Bay to Kingsnorth Power Station
Closer to the visitor centre is Sharp's Green Pond, a small freshwater pond inside the clay seawall, which is used to promote a diversity of wildlife within the park. Sharp's Green Bay (left of Horrid Hill causeway) is a small tidal marsh bay where a few houseboats are moored. A small car park is on the bay, from a narrow access road from Lower Rainham Road.
Horrid Hill. It is said that the name comes from the hanging of convicts, who had attempted to make their way to this island from the prison hulks anchored in the estuary.
