Pavement Pounders and the Folkestone Book Festival
The Folkestone Book Festival have again asked Pavement Pounders, a local community interest company to devise and lead a guided walk. This year the walk will be loosely based on the theme of innovation – scientific, artistic, metaphorical and concrete – both past and present. From the coming of the railways 150 years ago to the making of The Creative Quarter, innovation has been central to the story of Folkestone.
Explore with us this heritage on our doorstep.
