On the way back from the sound mirrors we went to Dungeness. I very much enjoy the assembly of seemingly unrelated pieces that seem to make their own sort of sense. The way the ground is left to its own devices accounts for much of this assembly – a tentative infrastructure.

This is also my 365th post on this blog in just under two years that it has been running – so just over a post every two days.

A similar view to the ones I posted the other day of Dungeness, but seen in stereo you can pick out the folds in the land that are hidden when viewed in 2D. The track was to carry fish from the boats to the road (see here for earlier post)

Hastings’ fishing fleet is moored on the beach. There are winches to pull the boats on shore and a light weight infrastructure of huts to store the equipment that is not distributed on the beach. The screen shot below (from Google Maps) Shows the arrangement in plan, with everything arranged either side of the winch lines. At Hastings the boats are protected by a breakwater, but at Dungeness there is no large scale infrastructure to protect the fleet other than the shape of the coastline.
