December 28th: A day in Dungeness

Derek Jarman's cottage.


Spent the day down in Dungeness which was fun. We had a fish and chips lunch at the Britannia Inn and then wandered around the beach area taking pictures and got blown about a bit. The area is a protected nature reserve and the landscape is somewhat surreal and eerie, especially with (soon to be decommissioned) nuclear power station nearby. The beach cottages, which simply rest on the shingle, have become somewhat desirable since Derek Jarman famously moved down to the area and spent his last years doing up the cottage he bought.
