Dungeness on Tuesday

I’ve wanted to see Derek Jarman’s Garden for at least 15 years and on Tuesday, after a long drive across the bleak, flat marshes we found it more easily than I thought we might.

Although it is not as he made it (he died in 1994), it still has an aura, an atmosphere about it and the current owners have kept much of the basic structure of the garden.

It is not so isolated as I had imagined, and quite a walk from the sea……

  1. I’ve never heard of this type of gravel being called shingle. Interesting.
    His art from rubbish, so cool. A very eclectic fellow!

  2. this garden is such an inspiration for me the combination of the different objects even they are strangers in the garden became a part of the garden setting.


    • I have been inspired by this garden for so long – I was so glad to see it at last – glad you like it Roos. I’m wondering if you already knew about the garden.
