Newer Older

what everybody goes looking for when they go to dungeness. i took this some time in summer 2006. i don't actual no what derek jarman did apart form make films, the only reason i know who his is because he lived in dungeness and people come from all over to see his house there i must really check out his films. last time i went to dungeness i found some very interesting facts about the place that i did not perversely know

    Other Dungeness attractions besides Derek's House:

    • The little smokery hut that does smoked fish and cheese
    • The Romney Hythe and Dymchurch Light Railway
    • The old lighthouse
    • The beautiful beach house designed by Simon Conder Associates
    • The wild desolation and barrenness of the countryside
    • Carcinogenic radiation from the nuclear power station

    Derek Jarman was one of the more interesting artists to emerge in the 80's. Was his house interesting?

  8. Rebecca Weeks 75 months ago | reply

    Fantastic perspective as always Kev.

    TedSher from the out side its black and and has yellow windows as for the inside i don't know because its someone's house i keep a respectful distance

  10. Nick Sayers 75 months ago | reply

    Ah yes, I'd forgotten about the sound mirrors, although they're mostly north of Dungeness. Hadn't seen that massive arc wall one – will check that out next time I go. As for the smokery, no, that's not it. It's a little wooden shack with a guy who sells smoked fish and cheese. Check it out!

    I have cited this photo on my stream in my tribute to Derek Jarman
    as you are a contact of mine and have such a good eye!

    Its a statement of the edge
    And of Life

    That cells are killed
    Are drilled by HIV

    Its viral knife

    So Derek gathers
    By the scatters before he dies

    And lives by his last arts
    And a courage that he had tells no lies ...

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Prospect Cottage and all things Derek Jarman, and we'd love to have this added to the group, and the blizzard one would make a nice comparisson in the pool.

    BTW, what is a 'sound mirror'?
