Latest reviews | Events in Isle of Sheppey | 10 Places to Stay

Off the northern coast of Kent, in the Thames Estuary, lies the Isle of Sheppey - a small island of 36 square miles. The name Sheppey is derived from ‘Sceapige’ an ancient Saxon term literally meaning “island of sheep” and to this day, large flocks graze on the extensive marshland that accounts for much of the island. Originally known as the Isles of Sheppey before the channels which separate them silted up, as the land mass actually consists of three main islands, including those of Harty, Elmley in addition to Sheppey although a multitude of islands exist due to the marshy nature of the land and an abundance of channels and drains. Separated from the mainland by a channel called The Swale and similar to that which separates the Isle of Thanet, ancient mariners used these channels to reach London and Chatham whilst avoiding the worst of the North Sea weather. Sheerness, the main town on Sheppey, owes much to its origins as a Royal Naval Dockyard established by Samuel Pepys in the 17th century, as anchorage for the navy and ordered a garrison fort as protection. The dockyard served the Royal Navy until 1960 when it was developed into one of the largest and fastest expanding ports in UK.
