Orford Ness from Orford

An extraordinary place in Suffolk, now visitable only by ferry across the Alde, partly an RSPB site, partly cold-war bomb experimentation site, now ruinous. A vast shingle spit out into the north sea. You can just about make out the concrete anti blast pagoda roofs on the headland.
