Wear Bay Dock

FG ≫ 2005 ≫ Wear Bay Dock

Does anyone know what the dock/landing stage at Wear Bay was used for and when was it built? Somebody told me it was built as a troop embarcation dock in WW1. Looks older to me. Also, what are the remains of the builing and chimney(?) and what look like railway tracks(visable at low tide) at Copt point?


💬 Where's that then?

This is my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. This site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for best venues + things, + I know it was a handy resource for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend paper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
