East Cliff and Warren Country Park :: TR2538
This is a section of land below the East Cliffs of Folkestone. It has various paths leading through it towards the coastline and beach, or up to the cliffs towards Old Dover Road. It is now a [Site of Special Scientific Interest] ( SSSI ), due to its interesting position and geology. The Grayling butterfly has a small colony in the site. The land has been created after several landslips of the chalk ground, since the last 200 years. After 1915, the Dover to Folkestone. Railway line (running through the site) was defended from coastal erosion. This also had the intentional effect of stopping any more landslips to the land beyond the line. In 1924, the land was gifted to the council of Folkestone and the country park was formed soon after.
