Queenborough is a small historic maritime town on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent, facing the Swale, and with its creek, town quay and harbour, accommodates several fishing trawlers and cocklers as well as maritime industries and a busy boating and yachting scene in the summer. Its combination of industry and wildness with dramatic skies and sunsets make it a place of great atmosphere.
