We invite you to take part in a FREE guided historical walk lead by local Historian Ian Coulson and Joy Davies of the Ramblers association on Tuesday 20th September, meeting at the Roman villa excavation site on Folkestone's East cliff at 10.30am and walking to Castle Hill and back, finishing around 12.30pm.

The route is via The Valiant Sailor up to Castle Hill then back at lower level and therefore is open to all as is flat most of the way, the steepest incline being the path to the Valiant Sailor.

Open to anyone interested in hearing about local history on this attractive route. No booking required.


We are still seeking new or returning/regular volunteers to help during the rest of the month at the East cliff at the excavation as there is still a lot to do and time is running out! Please do come along even if for half a day to help, you can come along any day, no need to book your time in, 7 days a week, just before 9am or 1.30pm. Many thanks.

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places and things, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
