I've found Fellenberg College

FG ≫ 2006 ≫ I've found Fellenberg College

⬆️Fellenberg College, 4 Church Street, Folkestone

It's now mostly a shop called Pickwicks! Here are some pictures I took of it, looks like it's been at least partly demolished. Here's a view up Church Street, towards the Church, Fellenberg College is on the right where Pickwicks is now.

[picture gone from here. Get in touch if you're interested I still have it]

Here's a straight on view of the building, looks like it's been at least partly demolished, possibly it was bombed during the war.

I did notice that on the same street there's a plaque to William Harvey1, he lived (and was possibly born, I forget) in a house on this street.

This is part of my website The Folkestone Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when we first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. This site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events and voting for favourite places and things, + I hear it was a useful resource for those who were thinking of 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 The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. I am not Gerald by the way, the name comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye 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 get in touch if you have something to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
