Looking across Romney Marsh [Mar. 24th, 2016|04:12 pm]

From St Stephen's churchyard, Lympne

The large building just visible on the far side of the bay is the power station at Dungeness.

Lovely, moody, evocative. But why do they call it a marsh? It looks like fields to me.

It's a low-lying area which used to be marsh but was then drained for agriculture. Back in the 18th century it was famous- or notorious- for smuggling.
