Dungeness Dreaming

Dungeness Dreaming, originally uploaded by TomRaven.

It's here where the land meets the sea,
flat, wilderness, desolate in it's beauty.
Pebble-dash shingle, stretches, runs free
for miles and miles.

It is here where the land merges into sky,
which covers like a blanket over your head.
Colours ever changing, as weathers break by
black to blue, grey to gold.

From Dungeness by Ann Rta

Dungeness is a desolate, surreal and beautiful place. A shingle headland jutting out into the English Channel, its designated as a National Nature Reserve (NNR), a Special Protection Area (SPA), a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and part of the Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). It is also home to the 4 Nuclear Reactors that make up the Dungeness Nuclear Power Station and to a scattered mixture of ramshackle huts, old beached fishing boats, shipping containers, cottages and designer cottage conversions along with odd scrap sculptures and the iconic Old Lighthouse pictured here.
