A thing in The Telegraph, covering Folkestone, high speed trains, property, and James Bond.
What we do know, though, is that once trains get to Ashford, the journey time to London will be reduced from 83 to 36 minutes. And with Hitachi trains also operating between Canterbury West and St Pancras, we can predict a similar reduction in journey times on that route, too.
This is my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when we 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 venues and stuff, and I hear it was a useful reference for others who were moving to the area. 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 becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a fake newspaper in an episode of The Day Today 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 contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
