TR2638 : Steps up the cliff at Folkestone Warren

Steps up the cliff at Folkestone Warren
Steps up the cliff at Folkestone Warren
A zig-zag path descends the cliffs of Folkestone Warren beneath the Cliff Top Cafe. The path then follows the railway line eastwards before ascending rapidly again via steps to a caravan park. This view is near the top of the steps and gives a close up of the path cut through wind-bent shrubs. The cliffs of Folkestone Warren consist of a series of landslides, and have probably been more intensively studied than any other landslide of comparable size in Great Britain. This is largely because it is crossed by the main Folkestone-Dover railway line, which on occasion has been displaced by slipping. This has created an immediate demand for detailed studies and monitoring. The site has suffered twelve major slips since 1765, and is now protected by complex coastal defence works.
