On this day 17th March

Today’s photograph was taken on this day two years ago. At that time I was recovering from a broken collarbone so my explorations were confined to train assisted rambles. This one involved a train ride to Leigh on Sea in Essex and than a hike across some fields to the castle. Building began in 1215 and it was refortified during the Hundred Wars Year. In Georgian times the towers were used by customs men to keep a look out for smugglers up the Thames estuary below.

A photograph from this day in an earlier year; in this case, 2019, at Upnor on the River Medway in Kent, almost opposite to Chatham.
