  • A long distance view of two (one in front of the other) of the three Denge sound mirrors at Lydd on Sea in Kent. These concrete concave dishes were used to collect and amplify the sounds of approaching aircraft that were out of sight over the English channel. They worked well but soon after they were created radar technologies made them redundant. Photo taken at the access steps to the largest (200 feet long) mirror. #heritage #history #wartime #radar #technology #kent #lyddonsea #concrete #dish #dungeness #sound #acoustic #mirrors #island #vintage #photosofbritain #omgb

This photo is so wonderful! Looks like a statue of some kind from one perspective, and then upon further inspection you realize what's really there. Love how you captured this shot๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Great photo and really interesting to read about the mirrors. I think if I came across them I wouldn't know what they were or what they were used for so thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ‘
