    Fantastic little page. I really love the coastal footpaths in the UK. So I would like to try the Dover to Folkstone path one day.

    Folkestone looks like a beautiful place. Do they do much swimming on the beaches there? I know the water is much warmer than over here, LOL :-)

    Hi Nat, did you know the giant propeller at capel is used as a land mark for commercial aircraft when flying to England.
