Cont. from previous entry

In the field behind our house there were Roman Remains; I think it was a villa with most of the foundations showing and a natural spring. The land was adjacent to a Pfizers warehouse. I used to go for walks around the harbour watching the Channel Ferries docking. Also my Father used to fish from the breakwater. On the Sea Front there was an Amusement Arcade and a Funicular Railcar which dated back to Victorian Times.

My Grandparents lived in Shorncliffe. My Grandfather was Manager of the Dover Labour Exchange during WW2 and received an MBE from King George for his service there during the War Years. My Father attended the Harvey Grammar School along with his Brother in the 1930,s

I am sure I have more memories of Folkestone. If I can assist in research from the 50's I would be happy to help. I now live in Reading Berkshire; but would like to revisit the town.
