I'm lucky enough to live in a high rise apartment block, enjoying far reaching views. This camera is located on the former Chatham Naval Dockyard site, which dates back to around 1567. Since it's closure in1984, a large proportion of the site - including all of the ship basins and many of the former dry docks - have been extensively redeveloped into a mixture of commerical and residential properties including a marina that serves the river Medway. Part of the site, now known as the Historic Dockyard, has been maintained by a trust and is an excellent vistor attraction in Kent.

The camera is about 100ft up, pointing roughly north and can be panned, taking in the views from Upnor Castle in the west to Kingsnorth in the east. St Mary's Island (and the ongoing development of it) can be seen in the foreground with Chattenden and the Hoo peninsula on the horizon.

It costs around £100 a year to keep this site & camera running, so if you are able to make a purchase from my shop, I'd be grateful.
