Artist's Description

The Dover To Folkestone mainline runs along the coast at Folkestone Warren in Kent, UK between two tunnels near each town. The English Channel lies immediately next to it. The area is prone to rotational slip as the porous chalk sits on impermeable clay at this location, the most drastic being in 1915 when the line was closed for three years for repairs after the whole area moved towards the sea overnight and a train was derailed. Now it is drained and measured constantly with seismic equipment and is the most expensive piece of rail line in the UK to maintain.
