Apologies Keith.  I just saw the "Elmley Island / Marshes" line in the RSS preview, "The Lillies" was off the bottom of the screen.  Well done, you are correct, over to you.

Right shoot999.  So now you've got the place, what are the islets called?  In passing the photo was taken from the Saxon Shore Way, that's what the sign is for.

Coming into the Swale from the  West you go upstream to Milton Creek so the red buoys are on the left (port side).  Coming into the Swale from the East you also go upstream to Milton Creek. So again the red buoys are on the left(port side). Therefore the buoys switch sides at the entrance to Milton Creek?

Keith, you're so nearly there.  The view is from the south of the Swale.  Keep thinking about Milton, you were right about the buoyage reversing, but it was nothing to do with how busy a port is.  All we need is the name of the islands.

The Swale near Conyer Creek.  Sea bed is privately owned - are the buoys related to that,  Oyster beds?

There are so many named marshes on the map so what side of what river or creek am  I on and which way am I looking?


I used to know it around here when 19 yrs old as my neighbour was a skipper on a coastal and continental barge I worked for him for quite a while after my apprenticeship in 1967 and this was the buoyage rules around Milton Port etc.

No, but the right river this time.
I've just noticed you comment on the buoyage, you're very nearly right.
