ChalkUp21

27 km / 17 miles

Kent
ChalkUp21 is a coastal trail celebrating 21st-century architecture along the Strait of Dover that hugs the coast between Folkestone and Deal, linking nine buildings and public artworks. The route follows two National Trails and is not a separate route, namely the North Downs Way and England Coastal Path (Folkestone to Ramsgate section).

In the last 17 years, some fine examples of coastal architecture, many of which have received prestigious industry awards, have been built along the Strait. The trail links: The Wing at Capel Le Ferne (2015); the Samphire Hoe Education shelter (2014) and on the Dover Esplanade, Tonkin Liuís Three Waves (2009); the Dover Sea Sports centre (2010) and Alma Tischler Woodís North Downs Way start/finish line (2010); the National Trust Visitor Centre (1999); the Pines Calyx (2006) at St Margaretís Bay and the Niall McLauglin Deal Pier Cafe (2009). The Trail will also include an exciting new public art work by Elaine Tribley, 'Gateway to the Cliffs' at the end of Athol Terrace by the Port of Dover Eastern docks.

There is information online on the link below.

CHALKUP21 is a publicly funded project to create a substantial contemporary cultural tourism offer for Dover by linking together 9 of these examples into a 17-mile Coastal Trail using existing national routes.
