Kingsnorth Industrial Estate
Hoo St Werburgh, Kent

Formerly known as Berry Wiggins and Co Ltd

Berry Wiggins and Co Ltd was a large oil refinery and bitumen manufacturer near to the Kingsnorth Power Station on the Medway Estuary. The company has since broken up and the site is now home to the Kingsnorth Industrial Estate, a host to a number of businesses. The northern part of Berry Wiggins where it's old rail depot stood is now an oil recycling plant, whilst the southern side is now the Kingsnorth Bitumen Products Ltd.

Additional Notes:

The "project" base entrance was actually very close to the point where the Doctor was hidden in the jeep, if the camera had been turned around!

You can still make out the old railway lines to the refinery from the aerial map.
