Remembered, Not Forgotten; Folkestone’s little-known architecture
Cyma Architects have lovingly depicted the unknown or missing buildings to show their true architectural dignity.
The drawings and paintings are for sale.
Folkestone underwent a major building programme from the industrial era of the 1850s until the outbreak of World War 2. The building was mostly at the instigation of the Des Bouverie family (the Earls of Radnor) who employed well-known architects such as Decimus Burton and Sydney Smirke as well as those lesser-known, such as Reginald Pope and Brightwen Binyon. The town was once graced with an exquisite church by George Frederick Bodley, with works by William Morris within. This and many other buildings were demolished shortly after the War as trade evaporated.
Cyma director Mark Hall and Architectural Technician Marcello Tomasini joined a team of 15 intrepid members and supporters of the Kent Construction Focus Group (KCFG), to walk 24 miles and climb three of Yorkshires highest mountains in less than 12 hours on Saturday 30th of April, to raise funds for the Pilgrims Hospices. The Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks is a very arduous and difficult challenge and the team have been in training since February walking up and down all the hills they could find in Kent to prepare. All 15 members of the team completed the walk within the 12 hour target regardless of blistered feet and tired limbs.
The kcfg group consists of companies in the Kent area involved in construction, such as Architects, Surveyors, Contractors, Construction Suppliers, and Land Agents etc kcfg provides a one-stop-shop for access to local knowledge, expertise, and contacts within the land development and construction sector. The group’s maxim is ‘Promoting Local Excellence for Local Projects’ and more information can be found on the group’s website www.kcfg.co.uk .
The companies and staff who took part in the challenge are as follows. Epps Construction, Albert Walton, Joe Thomas, Joe’s sister Florence Thomas, Peter Herrington and his wife Chris, Cyma Architects Mark Hall & Marcello Tomasini, MLM Toby Crayden, John Butler, Jonathan Roger, & Philip Cross, Squires Young Associates, Francis Squires and Tony Gee & Partners LLP Gavin Thom and his wife Dorothy.
Cyma Director Mark Hall and Architectural Assistant Marcello Tomasini are joining other members of the Kent Construction Focus Group (KCFG) in the Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge on the 30th of April this year to raise money for The Pilgrims Hospice in Canterbury.
The walk will consist of climbing the three highest peaks in Yorkshire, Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough all in one circular route and all 25 miles and 5,000ft of climbing must be completed in 12 hours. In preparation Mark and Marcello have joined their fellow walkers in shakedown Sunday walks of increasing distances within the Kent.
