Private

I looked into the history of Dungeness , now really are the homes actually private?

 

you see most were just placed there with no permission. The area now belongs to the Paine family If you purchase one of the 80 properties you have to also pay a yearly lease fee for the ground and a service charge

 

so you own the building but not the ground it stands on

 

A strange community I spoke to a couple of resident who are non to pleased about the amount of tourists yet happy to sell their images and art work to tourists

 

There is talk of a toll gate being installed ready for next year

 

It has a certain odd charm about it but to me not a place to get away from it all . The buzz of the huge nuclear power station is another to drive you insane. I mean is it healthy to live next to a huge nuclear power station?
