Situated within the White Cliffs of Dover, Abbot's Cliff is beautiful and provides breath-taking views of the Channel and - on a clear day - France. The Samphire Hoe Country Park is beneath the cliff and can also be viewed.  

Built in 1928, the Sound Mirror at Abbot's Cliff was a precursor to radar and was one of several positioned along the south coast. They were all used to provide an early warning of approaching enemy craft via engine sound.

The location is accessible to the public, forming part of the North Downs Way.

Previous projects include: Back to Life (Daisy Haggard, 2019).

Subject to a minimum rental period.  Due to lead-in time and safety requirements, only productions categorised as Band C are recommended to apply.
