All these images have been photographed over the past few years. The views here are
just the start and will be added to as the months go by. Each season brings new opportunities
to capture different parts of England on camera and it sometimes means getting up
at ridiculous times to have the light in the right place. Even then you don’t always
get the photo you wanted!
Faversham is a market town on the North East coast of Kent. Although not on the sea,
it is connected to the Thames Estuary by a creek that flows into the Swale. The town
has many fine restaurants, pubs and other attractions. The walk to Hollow Shore along
the creek is a must.
Herne Bay is on the North Kent Coast and a few miles north of Canterbury. From the
beach you can see Southend, Isle of Sheppey, The Maunsell Sea Forts, The Wind Farm
and Reculver that lies just a few miles up the coast.
Deal is an attractive seaside town with many items of interest. It has a pier, two
castles, two small museums and a long High Street which has managed to maintain many
of its independent shops. There is a beautiful walk to the north which goes past
Walmer Castle through Kingsdown, St Margaret's Bay and, if you wish, can lead you
to Dover. The narrow streets are filled with interesting architecture that hasn't
changed over the years and each corner brings something different.
Folkestone sits on the south coast between Hythe and Dover. The harbour holds boats
of all shapes and sizes, some fishing, some pleasure. The walks along the cliffs
out of Folkestone give wonderful views of the coast.
Broadstairs is one of those little coastal towns that has all the ingredients to
make you feel you are on holiday. It has not changed or lost its character as the
years have gone by and holds onto its seaside charm.
Dover is famous for its Castle, White Cliffs and its Channel Port but there are many
other attractions that should bring people in. Beautiful walks take you over the
cliffs and on a clear day give wonderful views of the Channel and France.
Whitstable is on the North Coast of Kent and is home to many interesting places.
The harbour is still used by fishing boats and the fish markets are enjoyed by both
locals and visitors. Seasalter and Tankerton are both in easy walking distance along
Southbourne Beach, Christchurch, Hengistbury Head and Mudeford Dorset
The Beach Huts at Hengistbury Head have stunning views across the Solent on the east
side and Christchurch Harbour on the west side. The beautiful beach at Southbourne
stretches along Poole Bay through Bournemouth as far as Sandbanks.
Sandgate sits to the west of Folkestone next to Hythe. You can walk all the way from
Hythe to Folkestone along the beach or coastal path passing through Sandgate. Sandgate
is also known as The Riviera on the Napoleonic Coast.
