That was a surprise, to see the pub finally demolished after being left in that state for so long. Guessing it's not going to be another pub built on that site. Wish I'd got some pictures of it before it went now, not that it was a pub I had ever been in. I took some pictures of the Fountain the other day, as it's closed, but seems as if it will reopen.
This is my website The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places and stuff, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, the name comes from a pretend paper in an episode of The Day Today 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 contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
