Samphire Hoe and beyond

Samphire Hoe is a 30-hectare site between Dover and Folkestone.  Accessed through a tunnel, it is situated at the base of Shakespeare Cliff and was created during the construction of the Channel Tunnel.  Plan A had been to walk from the car park to Folkestone and back, but it soon became clear that it was going to take longer than planned because of the stony terrain.  Although we couldn’t have predicted it, the decision to turn back turned out to be a good one; as we got to the car the fog rolled in and the world disappeared!
