I'm quite low too at 12.77 metres.

Quite difficult to breath at this altitude and I find if I go upstairs I've doubled my altitude :lol:

Head in the clouds and sea lapping at my toes :D

This altitude is quite important, as the wreck of USS Montgomery with 1,400 tons of unstable high explosive, is sitting on the Thames riverbed just off Sheerness, 15 miles away. If it went off, the tsunami would be about 10m high, so wouldn't quite water my garden, but people over the road would get wet feet :roll:

Sorry if i sound really thick here but how can you tell exactly how high your garden is? Is there some kind of mapping done showing the heights? I have heard of being above sea level but even a whole town wont be exactly the same height due to hills or slopes etc. Interesting to know how you find the exact height out.
Best regards Aaron :)

Summer 2013 was a good one :-).

Looks like you've got the highest?

Looks that way, it's not a competition I want to win but the various replies make interesting reading.

At least I'm not in a frost pocket :D


Aaron - if you zoom in on the map in the link and on Kris's first post and click on your location, a little red pointer appears where you've clicked. The height at this point appears at the bottom of the map. I hope this is what you were asking about.

Just tried the postcode method, it works fine but I've just gone up another metre. I could do with coming down a bit really.

Yes Cathy, they have :D You should be ok with a bit of a rise in sea level, one or two others maybe ought to be considering a more aquatic style of gardening.
