The closest I have ever come to train spotting happened in this station (the Gare du Midi in Brussels). I took a couple of photos of the Eurostar, but at least it confirmed to me that train spotting was not going to be a hobby I could ever enjoy. It is quite a nice station I suppose, although I am not an authority on this. Whilst waiting for freinds to arrive I peered over the gantry and saw this solitary figure heading out into the throng of downtown Brussels.
The \’apron\’ that forms part of the sea wall defences at Sampire Hoe, Dover, Kent. Sampire Hoe is constructed from the earth dug out for the Channel Tunnel. During the construction of the Channel Tunnel, the area was known as the Shakespeare Cliff Lower Construction Platform. In 1994 a competition was organised by Eurotunnel and the Dover Express to find a new name for the newest part of England. Hundreds of entries were received, from which the judges chose Samphire Hoe.
These arches form part of the promenade and sea defences at Fokestone Harbour, Kent. These were bit of a lucky find as I don\’t go to this location much and fortunately it was low tide.
This gruesome, vile, stinking corridor leads from the Leas Cliff Hall car park to the Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone. As the Leas Cliff Hall is currently the only venue of note in this area for live music, occasionally one has to brave this corridor, but it should be done as quickly as possible, breathing as few times as your lungs allow.
