Bringing the outside in: Dungeness


When we first went to Dungeness a couple of years ago, I remember thinking ‘what is this place?’. It almost made me think of a moonscape or a forgotten land. I’ve never been anywhere where it is so easy to take a good photograph (except Venice maybe). The whole place exudes raw beauty. Everywhere the eye can see is weathered timber, rough grasses, tin roofs, pebbles of all shapes and sizes…and more weathered timber.

Not only does it have natural beauty, but beauty of the brutalist kind too. The Hinkley Point B Nuclear Power Station looks like a building gifted by the former USSR.

Between the ocean, the local architecture, the power station and the numerous lighthouses, Dungeness is certainly one of the most unusual places I have visited in the UK. And I can’t wait to go back!

If you want to bring a slice this wonderful place into your own home, see below.

    I love Dungeness, you’re right it really does have an other worldliness about it, a unique light and aura. I think it is very beautiful but not sure i could live with it, on the other hand that driftwood chest if drawers is lovely!

    Beauty in the nuclear power plant?? You must have vision! That’s why you’re so good at what you do! Great read.
