    I can feel another trip coming on if anyones interested.
    i would like to see your photo from 70's that be as i heard it was not on an island back in the day.



    also you can find all the sound mirrors that are left still standing here.. http://www.ajg41.clara.co.uk/mirrors/

    Yep, they started re-quarrying the shingle in the 80's and completely surrounded the mirrors. There was just a patch of water on the coast side of them last time I went out to them. I wouldn't think the earth quake had any effect. Underneath the shingle its basically peat. The fact that there was no mention of the power stations in the reports of the quake would indicate it din't affect that area at all. If I do go there I'll let you know. Mr_bones wants to come along and there's a few other things I want to visit the same day.

    Right, if anyones interested we'll probably be going here either this w/e coming or the next. We'll do the denge mirrors, hythe mirrors and maybe camber castle. Visit probably the best pub in the UK and other stuff. PM me if you fancy a trip.
