"Parkeston is a North Sea port, electoral ward and village in Essex, England, situated on the south bank of the River Stour about one mile (1.6 km) up-river from Harwich. In the 1880s, reclaimed land that had been Ray Island was developed by the Great Eastern Railway Company (GER) as a railway depot for import/export trade with the European mainland. The new port was named Parkeston Quay, after Charles H. Parkes, Chairman of the GER." [Wikipedia]
