UK Meet Me Ashore, Dungeness, Visit 2014

Recommended Posts

Last year I made a stop here and looked around these abandoned Boats. I really loved this place, very windy but also very peacefull.

I know there is some History about this place, but I don't know why these boats are still lying there. Maybe someone can tell me ;)

Dungeness is one of my favourite places to go and visit, I call it my thinking place - I go for long walks there when I've got things on my mind. I hope you went and had a pint and a meal in the pub and climbed the lighthouse. :-)

The old boats are simply the tattered remains of a once thriving fishing industry, along with all the sheds and various other items scattered along the beach. It is a lot clearer along there than it used to be about 5 years or more ago, they have started cleaning up the beach to make it a bit nicer. It's probably the last great wilderness in south east England and personally I love it down there.

Looks really awesome there and very photogenic. The 'show me your willy' graffiti made me chuckle too :lol:

If you ever fancy a chilled day out somewhere mate, give me a shout and we'll drive down here. It's in the arse end of nowhere, but it's lovely down there and you can see how close to the nuclear powerstation you can get before the armed security come down and have a word with you. It's a fun game.

Nice pics there, I do quite like old boats like that, and this looks a very peaceful place.

The 'show me your willy' graffiti made me chuckle too :lol:

I hear Maniac wrote that himself :)

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!

      Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.
