Northfleet harbour restoration taking shape
Volunteers burnt off some extra Christmas calories while helping to restore Northfleet Harbour on Friday (28).
It is hoped that the once-bustling hub will be rebuilt to its former glory and if plans go ahead, there will be a marina, a ship yard to fix up old vessels and a community space.
Conrad Broadley, of Northfleet Harbour Restoration Trust, said: “The biggest challenge has been raising public awareness, but we now have a big group of volunteers who are on board.”
A big digger cleared away much of the West Dock and slipway while helpers removed brambles and undergrowth.
The harbour is pretty much intact behind a flood-defence wall which needs to be demolished.
