Samphire Hoe
Samphire Hoe
Looking down on Samphire Hoe, which is all on reclaimed land using spoil from construction of the Channel Tunnel. The building complex is the ventilation plant for the tunnel, the west end is being landscaped and is becoming a diverse area for wildlife. (was named Samphire Hoe as a result of what to call the area competition - Eurotunnel just called it Shakespeare Cliff work area, after the cliffs that dominate the north edge.)
Samphire Hoe Country Park
Found at the bottom of a section of the White Cliffs of Dover to the West of Dover, the park was created using 4.9 million cubic metres of chalk marl from the Channel Tunnel excavations.

The park is accessed by car, foot or bicycle through a dark narrow tunnel off the A20.
