Impressions of Dungeness
Volvo P1800 S Coupe at Dungeness in front of the neuclear power station.
There are two nuclear power stations at Dungeness. Dungeness A is a legacy Magnox power station, connected to the National Grid in 1965. By the 31st December 2006 it had stopped power generation. Dungeness B is an advanced gas-cooled reactor (AGR) consisting of two 615 MW reactors which were connected in 1983 and 1985.
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.

    Very atmospheric Nigel. I like these Volvos, don’t know why particularly, probably because it would make a decent daily driver while being a classic as well?

  • Thank you, I really liked this and would happily own one too.
