Dymchurch - Hythe Road Beach
© Robert Lamb and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence
This beach forms part of a long stretch of sand and shingle backed by a wide sea-wall, which it is possible to walk along. As you head North-East, the beach becomes quite narrow.
Martello Tower (number 24) overlooks this stretch of the beach. This once formed part of the military defences built to defend the south coast from a possible Napoleonic invasion. The invasion never happened. Today this particular tower has been converted for use as a private residence.
Romney Marsh is not far from the beach and young visitors will enjoy taking a ride on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, which runs steam/diesel locomotives along a 13.5 mile stretch of coastline here.
