Featured in A Love of Boats
RX435 was built at Dungeness in 1964. Her port of registration is Rye and she is equipped with gillnets.
Many thanks to nigelphoto for the information about this boat.
Dungeness is formed mostly of a shingle beach in the form of a cuspate foreland. Cuspate forelands are also known as cuspate barriers or Nesses. They extend outwards from the shoreline in a triangular shape and in the case of Dungeness are stabilized by vegetation forming a unique eco system.
Dungeness is served by the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch miniature railway. It has two nuclear power stations, one active and one shut down, as well as two light houses one of which was manned, now a tourist attraction and the other computer controlled. The shoreline, unlike a lot of the UK which is being eroded is actually being added to, so the original lighthouse became too far in land to warn shipping.
There is a long history of fishing from the beach where winches and bulldozers are used to haul boats up the high shingle bank.
The houses and fishermen’s huts form part of the charm of this amazing place.

    superb image Nigel
    I’m not often a fan of hdr, but you have the balance just right here

  • Thanks very much. I am new to HDR and only use CS3 which doesn’t produce the affects that other sofware does.
