Part of the Through Time Series


Folkestone's Disappearing Heritage Through Time by Pam Dray

The Foord viaduct, built in the 1840s under the guidance of engineer Sir William Cubitt, is one of Folkestone's most iconic and beloved structures. The area in its vicinity has seen many changes over the years, from the disappearance of old shops and industries to the redevelopment of land for new housing and businesses. But before the community's heritage is lost forever, we can look back at how these streets and spaces used to be, in contrast with how they are now. Pam Dray takes us on a tour of the area where she has lived all her life, recording for posterity the character of her community, offering personal recollections of the past as well as insights into recent renovations. On the way, we learn about old pubs, hidden places, fires, floods and much more besides. Folkestone's Disappearing Heritage Through Time captures scenes, moments and memories before they are gone forever.
