    Denge is a former Royal Air Force site near Dungeness, in Kent, England. It is best known for the early experimental acoustic mirrors which remain there.

    The acoustic mirrors, known colloquially as 'listening ears', at Denge are located between Greatstone-on-Sea and Lydd airfield, on the banks of a now disused gravel pit. The mirrors were built in the late 1920s and early 1930s as an experimental early warning system for incoming aircraft, developed by Dr William Sansome Tucker. Several were built along the south and east coasts, but the complex at Denge is the best preserved.

    Access to these is restricted by a rotating bridge, but with the right preparation it would not be difficult to get on to the island they occupy. I was in shorts and vest at the time and didn't fancy a dip in the murky waters.

    The pic of the trashed sign shows why the bridge was needed to stop chavs wrecking them. I am glad they are being preserved and protected.
