The 2,000-acre ‘island of sheep’ lies on the south bank of the River Thames at the mouth of the River Medway. Separated from the mainland by the River Swale, it is about 10 miles long and eight miles wide and is joined by a bridge. Sheep still graze here on reclaimed pastures. Its northern edge is lined with beaches (including a naturist beach). Most of Britain’s imported cars reach us via Sheerness docks at the island’s north western tip. Sheppey is a haven for birds and has an RSPB site at Elmley Marshes, as well as the Swale National Nature Reserve.
