Many of you will have been aware of the proposed theme park development at Swanscombe Marshes which has been discussed for several years.  This is an area that we have visited as a group and several of our members are regular visitors.  Some might remember Peter Beckenham guiding us around on one of our early visits.

Swanscombe Marshes

It is a great area for wildlife and an oasis in the middle of development and industry.   It is a precious area for many species which are already being squeezed out of our local environment.   It is very sad to see this wonderful habitat being threatened yet again.

With all that in mind Peter set up an online petition against the current development proposals a while ago and as it is now back in the news it has had more signatories recently.   If you follow the link below it will give you all the details you need.  Please sign the petition, it only takes a moment to do and please tell your friends and share the petition.

For more information on Swanscombe Marshes, use the search function on our home page and it will bring up our Group visits.   Or “google” Swanscombe Marshes and it will lead you to much of the information which has been produced over the years.   In addition there are facebook and twitter feeds for those of you who use social media.


Thanks to Julie for highlighting this.

  1. Does the RSPB have an official line on saving Swanscombe Marshes

  2. Hi Rob, I’m awaiting a response from RSPB and will let you know when I hear from them. Our usual contact is furloughed at present.
