Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Dungeness is a huge shingle headland at the Southern tip of Kent, just to the South of Romney Marsh and 5 miles from New Romney.

There are two Lighthouses, the older of which is open to the public. The more recent was built in 1959. Dungeness was always a dangerous place for shipwrecks.

There are also two large nuclear power stations.

Nearby Denge Marsh is a bird sanctuary.

Dungeness is the terminus of the celebrated narrow -gauge steam line known as the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Railway.

The English fleet was defeated by the Durch in a naval battle off Dungeness in 1652.

PLUTO (Pipe Line Under the Ocean), carrying petrol to Northern France after D-Day in 1944, had one its English terminals at Dungeness, the other being at Shanklin.

The film maker Derek Jarman bought an old fisherman`s cottage here in 1986, and lovingly created a garden on the shingle.
