Information board at Langdon Hole
Langdon Hole is a natural amphitheatre in the Langdon Cliffs which continue all the way from Dover to St Margaret's at Cliffe. From the cliff top at the far side of Langdon Hole a zig-zag path, built in the 1830s, leads down to the beach and the wreck of the SS Falcon, which caught fire and was beached here in 1926. Its remains are still visible at low tide and can be walked on. The notice board is one of several put up along the cliffs by the National Trust who own the area. The one here tells the story of the railway which was constructed to get coal from the Kent Coalfield inland to Dover Harbour.
