  • Dover and a Sea walk to Folkestone | My Favourites | Coastal Walk | North Downs | Day Hike Saturday
    Hiking In London, Jul-21

    Coastal Walk along the cliffs to Dover, with options also taking in The Warren.

    Next event: http://www.senderismoenlondres.co.uk/events.html

    Main walk: 14.8 km (9.2 miles)

    Toughness: On average 5 out of 10

    This is a highly scenic coastal walk with fine sea views throughout. It introduces you to some quainter sides of Folkestone, a town which like many south coast seaside towns is undergoing something of a renaissance. You then climb up past a Martello Towers (Napoleonic-era fortification) and out into the Warren, an interesting area of wild coastland and former landslips, where you walk along concrete sea defences and then climb on a steep, but not vertiginous, path up to the top of the cliff.

    The rest of the route into Dover is along the top of the chalk cliffs, passing a fascinating series of World War II installations, including a rare sound mirror (an early form of aircraft detection that was superseded by radar), and some large gun emplacements. The only downside on this section of the route is noise from the A20 dual carriageway just inland, though this is muted when the wind is blowing from the sea (i.e., from the south or south-west). In compensation, there is a dramatic approach to Dover – a narrow (but not difficult) ridge between an inland valley and the sea. The walk finishes by crossing the town’s Western Heights, passing deserted 19th century forts and with wonderful views of the town and port.

  • Folkestone To Dover Via Samphire Hoe
    Javier Vagabond, Jun-21

    A walk between Folkestone and Dover following the base of the cliffs where possible. I’m not sure if this walk can be done at high tide; it’s possible at low tide, but it involves walking on shingle and going down a ladder.

    Music:

    Jack Pound - Folkestone Moon

    Sharleen Spiteri - Many Rivers To Cross

    The D-Day Darlings - (There'll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs of Dover

  • Folkestone to Dover. 7/2/20.
    amib, Feb-20

    This was a lovely visit to the sea-side on a brisk, late Winter's day, to undertake around 9.25 miles of walking. Although some of the scenery replicates an earlier walk done 8 years prior (SWC 93c), this walk hadn't been done before.

    There's a short section through Folkestone, which is being regenerated, before the ascent up to the Downs. Thereafter, there's some great views of The Warren, down below; The Channel; The Battle of Britain Memorial and lots of War-time memorabilia, including a rare 'Sound Mirror'.

    Lunch is had at one of several picnic stops around the half-way mark, and not far from the suggested pub-stop.

    After this comes the remotest, and best part, of the walk, prior to the descent into Dover, with views of the Channel Tunnel exit near Samphire Hoe Country Park and the busy harbour.

    There's a further ascent over the Western Heights, before a couple of alternative endings. Today's was straight to the station, due to failing light.

    A very pleasant walk, though there's some wind interference on commentary due to the impending Storm Ciara. On the other hand, this dispensed with traffic noise from the nearby A20.
