Whilst I work on reinventing the SheppeyScum blog, I will finish the current series on the land of the Swampies with a photoblog of my last two trips there, highlighting all the major places on the island, with of course some of my lovely photos!
Visit Sheppey! It’s a lot nicer than you might think!
Getting to Sheppey
The last stop before Sheppey! Fun fact this is the least used train station in Kent.
I like this picture as it shows the new and old bridge as well as an old guy on a bike who has presumably come from the mainland to Sheppey.
In Queensborough, we spotted this Robin Reliant.
A gritty old tanker and tire in the mud, what more could you want?
Supposedly the best micropub in England.
Bluetown is less of a town and more a street these days.
Sign showing the former glories of Bluetown. There are two pubs here. I’ve been to both.
The train station in Sheerness knows how to welcome people!
Millwall-themed pie and mash shop in Sheerness, partly why they call it London-on-sea!
Another micropub on the journey to Minster.
Remember phoneboxes? I’m sure many drug deal has been done here.
Some arcade in the middle of nowhere.
Left most of my photos on the go-pro.
Bayview is a pub with a town around it. Here’s the pub.
Me eating cockles whilst wearing a Philippines Rugby League jersey in Leysdown-on-Sea. You want random? I deliver.
Savaloy and chips! Iconic seaside food, saveloy, and chips.
My brother getting the true Leysdown beach experience.
Classic 2 penny machines. Far too much effort.
Iconic UK beachside hits you can’t sleep in!
I reckon you could pick this up for $3000. Sheppey Holiday Village wasn’t exactly “happening”.

The view from Warden Bay was actually pretty stunning.
