Dover Arts Development launches and installs the first of the nine trail plaques at the Pines Calyx at St Margarets Bay, Dover.

Your Leisure is delighted to announce that the Dover Sea Sports centre is part of the CHALKUP21 trail - an architectural coastal trail that links together nine outstanding examples of 21st-century architecture along the Strait of Dover. The 17-mile trail includes The Wing at Capel Le Ferne (2015), the Samphire Hoe Education centre (2014) and on the Dover Esplanade; Tonkin Liu’s Three Waves (2009), Elaine Tribley's Dover Totems (2017) and Alma Tischler Wood’s North Downs Way START/FINISH line (2010).

The CHALKUP21 structures are linked between Folkestone and Deal by two of the finest long-distance trails in England and Wales; North Downs Way and England Coast Path National Trail routes. These pass through the Kent Downs AONB (Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty), the chalk grassland of the North Downs escarpment and heritage coastline to the beach to Deal.

The project hopes to inspire a range of creative responses through videos, photographs, drawings and poetry. So, whether you’re a creative person, an architect, or simply someone who likes a good long walk, CHALKUP21 aims to bring a newly developed awareness of the cultural spaces that surround us and form our communities. Be part of telling the story by using the #CHALKUP21 hashtag and share your images or responses to the Sea Sports centre by using the #CHALKUP21 hashtag.
