Folkestone Pier Head Lighthouse Photographic Art

Folkestone Pier Head Lighthouse

by Chris Page


Now a trendy Champagne Bar, but Folkestone Pier Head Lighthouse was once the final landmark that soldiers would see before heading to the Western Front during WW1.


I‌n 1918 the mayor of folkestone reported that over 8.6 million passengers had passed through the port between 1914 – 18, this figure including troops en route to France or returning on leave and Red Cross workers.


Folkestone played a key role throughout the war. For example, approximately 120,000 refugees landed from Europe. Folkestone Harbour was the preferred route through which post was sent to and from the Western Front. During this time about 10,500 ship and 7,000 train movements took place for the military, in addition to the 8,000 commercial ships and 8,500 trains.
