While the castle is no longer there, the charming harbour town remains, with many historic buildings remain and we will look at these on the walk and here how Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton stayed in the town. Leaving Queensborough we will walk along the bank of the Medway and then through the strange landscape of the car import and export yards to the port of Sheerness. Here we will explore the historic Blue Town and stop at the oldest pub in Sheerness. The walk will then take us to see a converted windmill and other buildings in the town, before finishing on the seafront, within sight of the wreck of the SS Richard Montgomery - a World War Two ammunition ship which still lies of the Sheerness coast. At the end of the walk there are all the joys of the English seaside. The walk is four miles and includes some steps. To get to Queensborough take a train to Sittingbourne and change for a Sheerness train. The journey takes about 90 minutes from London Victoria or London St Pancras. If you wish you can meet me at St Pancras and travel together.
