Short Step is a great WW1 site.......

Also on Canada day local school children lay posies on the graves of Canadian Troops in Shorncliffe Cemetary......

I lived in Royal Military Avenue during the '50s and went to Sir John Moore Primary School, I remember once a year we used to march to the cemetery and lay a posy of flowers from our garden on the grave of a Canadian soldier. I also remember the 'Six Windows' on the Manage (Menage?) which was a horse riding centre. We used to climb up a flight of steps outside to watch the horses.

Welcome to the new Folkestone Then & Now Guestbook. If you want to find an entry in the old book, or just want to read through the lovely memories, you will find a link to the archived pages at the top.

I think you will find this one more user friendly - and it even shows up on a tablet!

So let's get started, and fill up this book with your recollections of Folkestone

I have found a brochure from the 1940s or 50s for the Greystones Hotel in Folkestone and will send a scanned copy if you email me
I saw from your post that it didn't appear in your 1958 list of hotels but my late husband's grandparents definitely stayed there when it was run by the two ladies (I found the brochure in a drawer when clearing out the house)
