Videos of Folkestone: SECRET TUNNELS!

FG ≫ 2006 ≫ Videos of Folkestone: SECRET TUNNELS!

Just been trawling youtube.com1 to see if there's any new Folkestone footage that isn't local kids beating each other up, and there is! Here's some spooky silent footage of the Victorian Channel Tunnel2:

This is presumably the one that was abandoned because of fears of the French invading via it.

This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first moved to Folkestone sometime in 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places + things, and I hear it was a useful reference for others who were moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from the name of 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 GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
