Wood Avenue bus shelter, Folkestone
Wood Avenue bus shelter, Folkestone
The Wood Avenue shelter, which was built in 1927, was the original terminus of the old East Kent Bus Company and marked the boundary of the Folkestone area. During the summer of 2011, when there were fears that the shelter might be demolished, members of the Wood Avenue, Park View and Kitchener Square Community Association set out to save and restore it. Permission was given by Shepway District Council to carry out repairs, a restoration plan was put together and funds were raised by The Association. In its restored condition, the shelter sports the colours of the Folkestone buses of the 1920s in cream and maroon (taken from Shepway Today, Spring/Summer 2012).
