FOLKESTONE 697 Folkestone was at one time a flourishing place, and is again rising into im. portance. It has greatly increased since the opening of the South-Eastern Railway, the directors of which have made it a principal station for communication with France. Swift steam-packets pass daily, and often twice a day, between Folkestone and Boulogne (a direct distance of 29 miles), accomplisbing the voyage in two hours. The harbour has been greatly extended and improved, and numerous modern buildings erected for the accommodation of visitors, by whom it is resorted to during the summer months. The surrounding country is very beautiful. Dr. William Harvey, the discoverer of the circulation of the blood, was a native, and left a sum of money, with which a school has been endowed. Customs dues collected in 1857, £135,881. Pop. of parish, 1851, 6726.

Bromley derives its name from the quantity of broom with which it was formerly surrounded. It is pleasantly situated on the Ravensbourn, and possesses & spring whose waters afford great relief in a variety of infirmities, from the chalybeate with which they are impregnated. The church contains a monument to the memory of Dr Hawkesworth, (the author of the Adventurer,) and the tomb of the wife of Dr Johnson. Bishop Warner, in 1666, here founded a college for 20 clergymen's widows. Population in 1851, 4127.
