Just south of the port of Dover is this pan made from the dirt excavated while building the chunnel. There is a cafe and a large seawall which gets you right to the cliffs.

It’s become a regular place for myself and my wife to go for a walk now. Very peaceful and relaxing. Would be a great place to walk a dog I’m sure.

Great place for a stroll along the white cliffs There is a little tea and coffee stall selling a few snacks and toilets are available near the car park. Car parking is a pound for a few hours.

When they digged the chunnel they needed to get rid of all the material that came out of it. They dumped it on this spot and created and let nature do the rest. There is a parking and some small roads for walking and cycling....More
