Royal Navy Finds 61 Bombs On Nudist Beach

Isle of SheppeyVia the Telegraph:

Experts were called in after 26 bombs — including two submarine depth charges and at least six 10lb mortar bombs — were washed up on Leysdown Beach last month. And last week, during a two day search of the beach, on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent — the Navy found another 61 bombs, taking the total to 87.

The team found mortars, submarine depth charges, a string of 10lb bombs, bullets and a string of other ordnance, some dating back to the late 19th century, during the sweep. The east side of the beach — often called Shellness — is an official nudist beach.

It is listed on the UK’s Naturist Factfile, which states: “This official naturist beach is located near Leysdown-on-Sea at the eastern end of the Isle of Sheppey on the north Kent coast.

    Shellness is an appropriate name for a beech that has bombs wash up on it.
