Dymchurch - Hythe Road Beach

Dymchurch - Hythe Road Beach - Kent
© Robert Lamb and licensed for reuse under this 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.
