    I originally visited this place back in May as one of the first proper places that I did, but my photos didn't come out too great as I had just got a DSLR for the first time, ended up with every photo at ISO 800 without realising. After being busted by the police at our first target, and disappointed by the sheer tininess of the second, we headed down to the Harbour Station for what is an easy, and guaranteed explore.

    To make things different this time I only shot on my 35mm lens, so sorry if there's a bit much F1.8 going on :D

    My friend Little John, who works on the railways, tells me that they call the above 'pots', and they would have held up rails when in their original place. There were a few of them lying around, this one was the most intact.

    A statue from the last triennial in Folkestone, a creepy reminder of what happens when Folkestone tries to trick itself into thinking that it's cultured.

    Never grow old, eh? Ended up getting some sort of tar on my hands and coat through being nosey - it was quite annoying! Anyway, after that we were pretty much done and headed out. I've been interested in this place for quite some time, do like it there. There are a few more photos on my blog, plus photos from my original visit are there too.

    Cheers for reading
