Ha, Ashford is only preferred by those who've not actually been to Ashford but just looked at the train timetables... Hopefully Folkestone will catch up a bit if we ever get this new high speed rail link.
Ashford is one of the most preferred new locations for buying in the UK - but other towns such as Ramsgate, Folkestone and Canterbury are all set to benefit from the influx of affluent newcomers.
This is my site The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we first moved here in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for best venues and stuff, and I know it was a useful reference for others who were thinking of moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
