Hi Alistair, we used to go onto the sands in the 90's on the Hovercraft with the 'Goodwin Sands Potholing Club' to raise money for local charities. People used to take bikes, small hovercraft's, picnic sets and of course cricket sets. I think I went out about 5 times in all. The then TVS filmed it once.
Fascinating place...

Oh and I forgot all the seals that live there

Went out to the Goodwin Sands a couple of times when the Hovercraft was still running. While we were out there one trip a plane took these aeriel photos.

Another whale - this time on the Goodwins, reported by Kentish Gazette October 1802:
"A large whale 80-ft x 20-ft diameter died on the Goodwin Sands"

Also the paper later reported:  "A whale of such magnitude" on the shore at Dover.
