i am thinking of moving to folkestone and am unsure of where to live. I am looking to move from manchester where for 200-250k you cant get much more than a 3 bedroom house. I am thinking in folkestone having looked on the web there is a possibility of a 5/6 bedroom house for the same money. iam unsure of which areas to look in either sandgate road (west end?) or up on the hill near the pavillion (east end?) can anyone give me any advice. I would also be interested to know if anyone has any information on proposed 50m injection of cash for redevelopment of folkestone or how much property is expected to rise when the high speed rail link is finished??
This is part of my website The Folkestone Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first came here in approximately 2004. I'd 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 calendar of events + voting for favourite places + things, and I know it was a useful resource for those who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) 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. I am not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
