aerial photograph showing the site of the London Gateway Port and London Gateway Logistics Park taken shortly before construction of the park began in 2008. The port opened in 2013 and built on the site of the former Shell Haven oil refinery which closed in 1999. At the end of the 19th century the site had been occupied by an explosive factory which closed in 1919 before becoming a refinery in the interwar years.
