The Watch Tower


Driving, you will either come down Dungeness Road from the Lydd roundabout or along Coast Drive.

If from Lydd, after a mile pass the brown sign on the right to the RSPB, then the entrance road to the power station also on your right, and a road on your left.  You are now approaching some houses on your left and right.  The road curves to the left (becoming Battery Road) but keep right.  Pass the blue and white Dungeness sign on your left, then, before the open white gates, turn immediately right down a rough driveway towards a big white building.  At the top of the drive, there is a sign on the ground saying Coastguard Cottages.  We are to the left of the big white building. Please park, next to the red car, in front of the brown garage ahead (not the garage on your left next to the white bungalow).

If along Coast Drive, you will come to the Pilot Inn in front of you as the road curves right and becomes Battery Road.  Drive just a little way and turn left.  Then immediately right etc as above.

If by bus, get off at the Pilot Inn stop, turn back, come just a little way, and turn left. Then immediately right etc as above.

You can reach Dungeness by car; by bus from Ashford, Hastings, Rye, Hythe, Folkestone, or other; by steam railway in season from Hythe on the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway; or by cab from these places.  For example, a cab from Ashford costs about £30 each way – call 07940317184 about an hour before needed.  If you take a cab from outside the station, check the price before getting in. There are cabs waiting outside Rye station.
