Tag Archives: Dungeness

I had wanted to visit Dungeness for ages as there is a small beach house there clad completely in black rubber and I knew it was a bit of an architectural oddity.  But apart from there being a massive nuclear power station in Dungeness which dominates the landscape I knew very little about the place.

I was in for a treat as what a strange beauty the place has with its expanse of shingle beach which is dotted with rare flowers and desert plants. The birds called and wheeled above my head in a vast sky which seems to go on forever.

The shingle is scattered with long abandoned tumbled down fishermen’s huts that jut out at odd angles from the landscape.

A lovely house

While there are lots of Tar painted timber cottages doted along the shingle at Dungeness there are also modern homes such as this above.

I want this house!

If you get a chance to visit Dungeness you must as it is magical!

Oh and if you are wondering about the rubber house, I’m saving that story till next time :)
