13FLK - The Slope

‘The Slope’ in Folkestone, before it was renamed as “Road of Remembrance” in the early 1920’s.The date of this photograph is unknown, but this would have been the view the soldiers saw as they marched down to the harbour.

The surface of the hill, visible in the image, is comprised of stone sets – not tarmac. When these stones were lifted to tarmac the hill in the early 1920’s, some were salvaged, and a memorial cairn (now listed) was made out of the actual stones the soldiers marched on.
