News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Ramsgate seafront.

Hi

This isn't the old railway tunnel into the cliffs, but underneath the road down to Marina Esplanade are some arches - you can see them at the bottom of this page:

http://www.historicmedway.co.uk/outsidemedway/ramsgate.htm

They're also visible on Google Earth at:

 51°20'10.01"N   1°25'44.92"E

Does anyone know what they are or were?

I know the page is a bit rough - I'm tidying it up and adding new photos soon.  The black and white restaurant was being torn down when I last visited, so I have some photos of that to go in.  It's a bit sad thinking back to how it was when I was small, with the amusement park that I never realised was a railway station!

Cheers

Jason
