Dungeness - Kent

fen_snapz's picture

Dungeness is a fantastic location for photographers, pretty much every genre can be covered by a trip here! 

Dungeness is a headland in Kent, a shingle beach, the main interest are the derelict boats dotted around the beaches amidst picturesque fishing shacks, with gardens that wouldn't be out of place at the Chelsea Flower show, there are 2 lighthouses, a nuclear power station, and of course one end of the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway which is a narrow gauge steam railway.

It truly is a mecca for photographers, and you can guarantee that every way you turn there will be someone with a tripod. 

The power station is lit up at night, and makes a great and interesting backdrop for the boats on the shingle. 

One of the lighthouses can be climbed, to give great aerial views of the scene, and one of the lighthouses is a working bulb.

There is a pub and a cafe locally with toilet facilities.

A fabulous location. The shingle beach is littered with old boats, huts and bits of machinery. It's a photographers paradise. These artifacts can be taken against the shingle, the sea or e sky to dramatic effect. The two lighthouses give good backdrops too.
