Dungeness, a headland on the Kentish coast of England, is a strange place. It's home to two nuclear power stations, one of which remains operational. The site is also a protected nature reserve and a residential area, complete with a couple of pubs and a "mystical" gift shop. Most of the houses are wooden and ramshackle, home to fishermen. Rusted railway tracks stretch into the distance. Broken-down boats and debris are strewn across the shingle and scrub. You'll also find the "listening ears" of Denge here, a set of alien concrete structures, or "acoustic mirrors," erected in the 1930s as aircraft detection systems. (They failed miserably.) Walking around it all feels terribly remote and deserted, like some apocalyptic scene straight out of a JG Ballard novel. It's easy to see why Oliver Ho was drawn to the place.
