The RH&DR began running to Dungeness is 1928 when Southern Railway was also operating in the area. Signs of the old railway are the cottages that have been made from old carriages.
Some of the houses here are owned and lived in by fishermen; their boats are near-by as well. If you walk down to the beach, you are likely to see beach fishermen. Please do not bathe here; the beach shelves sharply and the currents are very strong at the point.
Dungeness is one of the largest expanses of shingle in the World and is classified as Britain's only desert by the Met Office. It is of international conservation importance because of its plant and invertebrate communities and birdlife. It is recognized as a National Nature Reserve (NNR), a Special Protection Area (SPA), a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and part of the Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) of Dungeness, Romney Marsh and Rye Bay.
