Folkestone Harbour heritage threat


Folkestone Harbour
Originally uploaded by seadipper

The attractive brick viaduct that carries the railway from the main line down to the pier is only used occasionally for special trains such as the Orient Express. The line is due to close, the track will be taken up and the viaduct demolished.

But it is a fine piece of heritage, and surely there is no need to demolish it as part of the town's "regeneration"? In fact, I would suggest, it needs to be preserved as part of that regeneration. Why haven't the town's planners realised this?
