We recently visited, with Camberley & District Probus Club, Dungeness and the Romney marshes, and journeyed on the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway .
The whole area of the Romney Marshes is flat, where the land has, over the centuries, been mostly reclaimed from the sea. The hamlets and few small villages on the marshes are on the higher ground, which were islands prior to the land reclamation.
On our way to the Pilot Inn [see on map, click on image to enlarge] for lunch, we stopped at the hamlet of Brookland, and visited it’s unusual church – but more of that in the next article.
After lunch we travelled to Dungeness – dubbed Britain’s only desert. Though we thought there were plenty of people around, so not much of a desert. Here we boarded a 1/3rd size train of the Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Rly. I’m sure you know how much I like steam engines, of all sorts. I compressed our journey from Dungeness to New Romney into a short video [less than 1 minute]. Hope you find it interesting. Critically, I’ve probably spent too much of the video on trains, and not enough on the unusual scenery.
