Shorne to Shore Cluster Study
THe Shorne to Shore landscape begins at the rolling chalk downlands of the Kent Downs, falls away over the open arable fields and stretches out to the wild, flat grazing marshes of the Thames Estuary. This is one of the few places where views to the Thames Estuary marshes can be enjoyed from parts of Gravesend, the A226 and commuter trains. The broad belt of open arable farmland that sweeps from the ridge towards the marshes provides the setting for these views. By contrast, the narrow rural lanes have an enclosed, almost sunken character; some continue as historic tracks leading out on to the marshes.
