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

Aerial view of Observation posts/bunkers just above Samphire Hoe, between Folkestone and Dover. When you fly along this stretch of cliffs it's amazing just how many gun batteries and observation posts/shelters there are. Must have been busy during the war!

Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast
