From the rear side cover: Folkestone, Hythe and the surrounding area make up the distinctive district of Shepway in Kent. Over the last few years professional photographer Ray Hollands has taken hundreds of photographs around the region, and this book includes the best of them. Quirky and imaginative, these images capture the essence of Shepway, while informative captions add historical highlights and interesting background detail. Here we find a variety of illustrations that capture the diverse character of Folkestone, from ancient survivals to the most striking recent buildings, from traditional crafts to facets of modern life. The coastal pictures provide a valuable record of an often bleak and forbidding landscape, while the rural shots capture this area's serenity.

This book will captivate anyone who knows Shepway well, and will be a wonderful souvenir for those who are discovering this corner of Kent for the first time.

The book will delight anyone who has lived or grown up in and around Folkestone and Hythe, as well as people with a more general interest in the social history of this part of Kent and beyond...
