ARCHWAY OF CHALK ONCE A KENTISH SMUGGLERS' CAVE AT KINGSGATE

ARCHWAY OF CHALK ONCE A KENTISH SMUGGLERS' CAVE AT KINGSGATE

Between Foreness Point on the north and the North Foreland to the south is the sandy bay called Kingsgate. It was formerly named after St. Bartholomew, but at the Restoration was rechristened in honour of Charles II. There is a building known as the "castle," which was put up in the eighteenth century by Lord Holland, and this and a mighty arch in the chalk which was once the entrance to a cave, but which has now been cut right through by the sea, attract great numbers of charabancs in the summer time.
