EUROPEAN FERRIES - FROM HOOK OF HOLLAND 2017


25/07/17


Landguard point is a sandy bank of land located at the mouth of the River Orwell on the North Sea coast of Suffolk. Like most coastal ports the landscape is dominated by historic fortifications including Landguard Fort which is the site of the last opposed seaborne invasion of England in 1667 and the first land battle of the Royal Marines. The image was made whilst standing on a derelict WW2 pillbox.

The estuary mouth also hosts a nature reserve and bird observatory. It is a stark contrast to The Port of Felixstowe, Britain’s biggest and busiest container port, and one of the largest in Europe.
