#MyEstuaryStory

Help us tell the Estuary story!

We at Creative Estuary are building a record of the Thames Estuary area and what makes it special. If you have a connection with the area, then tell us your story.

Give us a sense of your place.

What is your town or locality like? How would you describe it? What about it inspires you – people, history, landscape, the Estuary itself? We want you to help us because we can’t visit everywhere ourselves under current circumstances.

The Thames Estuary area includes Basildon, Canterbury, Castle Point, Dartford, Gravesham, Medway, Southend, Swale, Thanet and Thurrock.

You can write a few lines, a poem, a photo story or even a video. Keep it personal and say why the Thames Estuary area is special to you. From family to landmarks, nature to heritage and everything in between.

Be as creative as you like. For example, whilst enjoying the outdoors in your local area and following Government guidelines, can you document what you see around you and what it means to you?

Tell us a unique story.
