Oh So Quiet


It's been reported today that Folkestone is the 4th most quiet town in the country. The study by UCL investigated background noise in towns and cities across the country, and found Folkestone to be amongst the best of the best. It's good news for our hearing, as the noise levels in our town are unlikely to do the damage that you can expect in places like Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and Gillingham. Torquay, Paignton and Cambridge (where I spent the other 3 years of my life) are also amongst the quietest places.

Folkestone won't be the fourth quietest town from much longer if plans to expand Lydd Airport go ahead. Indeed, it might become the fourth noisiest instead, depending on what height the passenger jets reach when passing over the town.
