A couple of days ago, we visited Dungeness. This is a unique area on the south coast. It is a spit of land built up from shingle banks and provides a very special habitat for unusual wildlife. The power station is close by.
The small houses are quite distinctive and fishermen and artists live here.
Here is Derek Jarman`s house and garden. He was a film director, gay rights activist, gardener and set designer. I am especially interested in his garden created in such harsh growing conditions, the way he has used the flotsam and jetsam, the pebbles and the driftwood.
The power station in the back garden!!
Fishing huts, collapsed and otherwise.
Piles of fishing nets and boxes of ropes.
Piles of rusting metal.
Lots of interesting objects on the tideline.
For campers, this is another unique area to explore....about 15 miles from the farm.
And there`s a good pub called The Britannia Inn which does great fish and chips.
