Sheerness is positioned beside the mouth of the River Medway on the northwest corner of the Isle of Sheppey in north Kent. With a population of around 12,000, it is the largest town on the island. Sheerness started as a fort constructed in the 16th century to shield the River Medway from naval invaders. After a Dutch attack in 1692, Samuel Pepys, the Secretary to the Admiralty, established a Royal Navy dockyard in the town, where warships were built and repaired until its closure in 1960. Using materials they were allowed to take from the yard, dockyard construction workers built the first houses in Sheerness. The grey-blue naval paint they used on the outsides led to their homes becoming known as the Blue Houses. This was eventually corrupted to BlueTown, the modern name of northwest Sheerness. Slowly over the years first BlueTown then MarineTown and MileTown were developed into what is now known as Sheerness. It is separated from mainland Kent by the Swale which is crossed by means of a lifting bridge that carries both road and rail links. The bridge lifts on average twelve times a day.
In the early 1820s, a fire destroyed many buildings at the dockyard, including all the Blue Houses. New houses and a major rebuilding of the dockyard then began. On 5 September 1823, the rebuilt dockyard was opened by the Duke of Clarence (later William IV). A high brick wall and a moat were put up around the yard to act as a defence measure and remained in place until the end of the 19th century. As the settlement spread eastwards, away from the dockyard and the Blue Houses, the whole area became known as Sheerness, getting its new name from the brightness or clearness of the water at the mouth of the River Medway. In the 19th century Sheerness also became a seaside resort when a pier and promenade were erected. Industry remains a significant part of the town, and the port of Sheerness is still one of the United Kingdom’s foremost car and fresh produce importers.
The town is the site of one of the UK’s first co-operative societies and the world’s first multi-storey building with a rigid metal frame. The town’s low rainfall and ample sunshine made it popular as a seaside resort, with tourists arriving by steamboat and train. The Sheppey Light Railway opened in 1901, linking the new Sheerness East station with the rest of the island. Unfortunately, by 1950, lack of demand led to the railway being closed down. The Sheerness tramway, which opened in 1903, only lasted until 1917. As of 2007, Bluetown is an industrial area, and Sheerness has become the largest port in the UK for motor imports. The Port of Sheerness covers over 1.5 million square metres and is a leading importation point for cars, fresh produce and wood products into the UK.
