Welcome Beyond the Point. We are dedicated to documenting the unseen history of Essex, North Kent and beyond in high quality. Our mission is to record surviving forgotten heritage to enlighten people about their hidden local histories. We founded a blog over ten years ago so we’ve launched our fresh new website with 300+ sites to explore to celebrate this milestone.


BTP is an award winning Essex-based organisation run by Joe and Liam who research, explore and document hidden heritage and exclusive locations.


Covering everything between overgrown outdoor ruins, to nuclear bunkers deep underground, our goal is to enlighten you on the usually skimmed-over parts of local history.


As young adults we are keen to get the next generation passionate about their local history and bring the past into present via our YouTube documentaries and hands-on vlogs.
