I took this 160° panorama from the river wall at the car park of the Worlds End Pub near Tilbury Port between 12-1 o'clock on a reasonably clear day. I should have waited though. As I was packing away the gear the sun had moved and was lighting up the town. Unfortunately I didn't have time to re-shoot it.
About Gravesend & Tilbury: In 1665 the bubonic plague spread like wildfire across the capital, killing an estimated 100,000 Londoners and leaving a dilemma of where to bury the dead. For many misguided historians, this is the origin of Gravesend - but in fact, the name was first seen in the Domesday Book about 500 years before, in 1086, as Gravesham. Located on the south bank of the Thames, opposite Tilbury in Essex.
The Port of Tilbury is London's major port, providing fast, modern distribution services for the benefit of the south east of England and beyond. A dynamic and diverse port handling the full range of cargoes with specialist expertise in the handling of paper and forest products, containers & Ro Ro, grain and bulk commodities and construction and building materials. Tilbury's strategic location makes it the natural point for distribution with 18 million people living within 75 miles.
