Was it Orford Ness? Or was that just where they did some of the initial nuclear testing?

 

I remember the episode of coast and it was somewhere with lots of mud flats/low dunes down in the south-east, but I thought it was north of the Thames estuary. However, my geography of East Angular and London is limited. :D Not even sure where Orford Ness is!

Been there a couple of times. I've heard them referred to either as the Denge sound mirrors or the Lade sound mirrors as they are between the two places. The nearest "on-Sea" is Lydd-on-Sea.

 

The author of the book I have on the subject "Echos From the Sky" describes them as being at Denge.

Edit: having looked at the map, the already given answer of Greatstone-on-Sea is marginally closer than Lydd-on-Sea. They are here anyway: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...c8-c1d88d92d5d3

:) having finally found a legible map, I'm going to have one final shot at this and nominate Greatstone on Sea.
Ding! and because there's some other strong suggestions: here's a link to Streetmap.co.uk, showing where they are. As a bonus, here I am there in November 2000, before they stopped people getting close to them:

remember it being in the news this week, some little country in the Himalayas:- not Tibet/Nepal, but can't remember the name!

 

Surely not Bhutan?

 

Well not sure to give you a ding since you state that it's NOT Bhutan.....

 

But I'm feeling generous, so DING !!!!!!

 

Bhutan has been a democracy since 24th March 2008 (see here).
