Archaeologists and volunteers in Folkestone have unearthed an ancient watercourse, said in legend to have have been created by an Anglo-Saxon Princess.
The engineering was so complex people believed the 7th century Princess had performed a miracle because the water appeared to flow uphill.
The water travelled for two miles towards St Eanswythe's convent in the heart of the town.
The water-course provided Folkestone with water for centuries and is believed to be one of the reasons the town was situated there.
The nature of its injuries have led police to link it to the killer who is thought to be responsible for the deaths of hundreds of cats.Read the full story ›
To save a historic tourist attraction in Kent diners are being given the chance to donate with their meals. The Victorian era Leas Lift in Folkestone was closed down last year until new safety systems can be installed.
During September a crowd funding campaign is giving people the chance to help re-open the lifts, by adding a donation to their restaurant bill in the town.
Built in 1885, the water balance lift at Folkestone is one of the last of it's kind in the country. The Victorian era lift was forced to close down last year, when health and safety rules dictated that it needed a second brake system.
Campaigners need to raise half a million pound to re-open the lift. The money will pay to restore it to it's Victorian glory, get it in line with current safety legislation and pay to keep it running for the first year.
Our goal is to get the lift back in operation and in future deliver something even more fabulous to Folkestone
