News Update


At last contractors are dismantling the bamboo eyesore which has been blighting the inner harbour.  It was erected without any kind of listed planning application on a grade 2 listed part of the viaduct.  It was actually seated on the rails of the branch.


All that remains here is the scaffold based skeleton of the structure and will probably be gone by the end of week commencing Mon 26-1-14.  However the bad news is that this probably means that track lifting on the branch is imminent.  The freeholders cannot take up ownership until the track is removed.  Not to worry - we have already been pricing up the replacement track!


The campaign goes on - we will not roll over and witness the profit motivated destruction of Folkestone's and moreover the UK's essential heritage and community future.  


Don't forget to sign and share our petition-demanding the retention of the station -here again is the link - https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/halt-the-destruction-of-folkestone-harbour-railway-station-3
