Welcome to Beyond the Point

We are dedicated to revealing the unseen history of Essex, Kent, London and beyond. Our mission is to record surviving forgotten or overlooked heritage to enlighten people about their local histories. 2021 marks ten years since we founded a blog so we’ve launched our fresh new website with 250+ historic sites to explore to celebrate this milestone. See all our locations here.


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.
