aerial photograph of Samphire Hoe Country Park near Dover Kent UK. The park was created by dumping all the spoil from the Channel Tunnel excavation here between 1988 and 1994. The current Chunnel is not the sites first tunneling event though as it was from here that an unsuccessful attempt was made to tunnel under the Channel in 1880.
