Littlestone to Camber Sands 23.07.12

P1020521The road past Derek Jarman’s poetic house at Dungeness leads us to the lighthouse, the grey fortifications of the power station, the old coastguard cottages and the endless shingle trudge across the nature reserve to Lydd.P1020524

No tea house to fortify us for the 5 miles of tarmac path to Camber, past fishing lakes and wind farms. Feet throbbing we make it to Camber Sands and make a quick exit away from the relentless holiday makers. Looking back at the nuclear power plant I wonder if it would have been less painful to walk along the shingle bank. I will never know.

Distance: 10 miles
