Telegraph | Property | The name's Bond - from the back of beyond

FG ≫ 2006 ≫ Telegraph | Property | The name's Bond - from the back of beyond

A thing in The Telegraph1, covering Folkestone, high speed trains, property, and James Bond.

What we do know, though, is that once trains get to Ashford, the journey time to London will be reduced from 83 to 36 minutes. And with Hitachi trains also operating between Canterbury West and St Pancras, we can predict a similar reduction in journey times on that route, too.

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when we first came to Folkestone sometime in '04. 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 calendar of events + voting for favourite places and things, and I hear it was a useful reference for others who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, the name comes from a fake paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
