  • 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.

  • 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.
