Guardian: Walk the North Kent Marshes – while the solitude lasts

A lovely piece of writing by Carol Donaldson in the Guardian.

4256The marshes are not an obvious beauty: it is a rough-edged love, full of derelict industry, broken barges, wide bays of mud; icy with blue light and shrill with redshanks’ calls in the winter, fields and scrub bubbling over with nightingales in the spring – and you never know if others will understand its appeal.

Our marshes at Graveney and Nagden are heavily influenced by farming activity, yet still have the rough-edged majesty and appeal that Carol describes.
