Dungeness is a very unusual landscape on the south coast of England in the county of Kent. It is the home of the Dungeness Nuclear Power Station, the area feels very baron, almost abandoned. Within the landscape are a series of small wooden houses and shack like buildings and even a couple of pubs and a fish restaurant. It has a unique atmosphere, unlike any other I have experienced within the UK. One would assume that not many people would want to live so close to a nuclear power station, but in fact the wooden buildings are very expensive and sought after.

Army Golf Course, Shoe Lane, Aldershot.
Police launched a murder inquiry after the body of 41 year old Philip Salmon of Reading Road, Farnborough, was discovered at The Army Golf Course at Shoe Lane just half a mile away from his home. He had been missing for nearly 7 weeks when a golfer discovered the remains while searching for a lost ball in the woodland beside the green on the 5th hole. Forensic tests revealed that Mr Salmon was set alight and police believe that petrol was used. A post-mortem carried out by pathologists failed to determine the cause of death and Mr Salmon’s remains were identified through dental records.
Detective Chief Inspector Jason Hogg said: “The circumstances surrounding the death of Philip Salmon are still not fully known”.
The case remains unsolved.
