Cheyney Rock is an ‘L’ shaped bank situated approx 1/3 mile off Sheerness, that dries several feet high at low water, but cannot be seen at other times.

The bank is believed to be named after a member of the Cheyne family, and also lends its name to the eastern end of Marine Town, Sheerness.

The road along this stretch used to be known as Cheyne Rock Road, but is now called Marine Parade.
