Dungeness is a very unique shingle peninsular that is located in the southern west point of the Romney Marsh, on the border of Kent abd East Sussex.
It juts out into the English Channel, South of the busy point of Dover.
The whole of the Romney Marsh has been forming for thousands of years, mostly made up of shingle that has been chisled out of the chalk cliffs that once formed the land bridge between England and France.
Part of its uniqueness is that the beach actually grows approximately 10 yards a year in a northerly direction. The area has always been an island, even in the Roman times and has been surrounded by the English Channel on the south and various saltings or marshes to the north.
Even today the Romney Marsh has most of its land mass, about ten feet below high tide levels and is very vulnerable to flooding. More
