Hidden places under the cliffs

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on July 30, 2004

Driving back from Dover yesterday I took a little diversion off the bustle of the A20, diving down the steep tunnel through Shakespeare Cliff to Samphire Hoe.

It’s hard to believe that this beautiful piece of chalk land was once under the sea – as it’s the site of the chalk marl spill from the Channel Tunnel. Now landscaped and restored, it’s a quiet, wild space, full of wild life (including adders) and all sorts of rare plants, while step chalk cliffs rise up over your head…

Expect photography from there over the next few weeks.
