Views of Capel-le-Ferne (3)

Cliff Top Cafe,  Old Dover Road

The Cliff Top Cafe is exactly where it says it is. On the clifftop! It is on the Old Dover Road between Dover and Folkestone and commands fabulous views.  When the weather is good the clientele can sit outside. The homemade cakes are good and they serve tea in mugs!! All very reasonably priced too.

Capel Baptist Church

The village chapel, situated in Capel Street, houses a small group who meet on Sunday mornings at 10.30am for worship.  There are up to twenty folk each week and the service times are intimate and reflective. Every other week some of the folk meet for Bible Study and prayer in a members home. In addition, food seems to be a key ingredient to the life together of Capel chapel. The fellowship is ably organized and led by Colin Patience who is part of the leadership team of Folkestone Baptist Church as a whole.

St. Mary’s Church

This lovely church is remote from the road and squats snugly on bleak downland above Folkestone, with views across the channel, looking towards France. A single Norman window, with a little delicate wall painting in the reveal, indicates its early origins; but most notable is a 14th-century three-arched stone rood-screen with, uniquely in England, an arched opening above for the rood itself.  There are also ancient roof timbers, a small brass and a 13th-century piscina.

Battle of Britain Memorial

Situated on the clifftop in our village.  This is a very popular visitor attraction and is well worth the visit, where on certain occasions a Battle of Britain Flypast can be seen in memory of our lost pilots during World War II.
