Hythe Beach is located on the south-eastern coast, approximately midway between Folkestone and Dymchurch. The unspoiled, mainly pebble beach slopes quite steeply into the sea and the water can become deep surprisingly quickly when the tide is in.
The beach at Hythe is backed by a promenade, approximately two miles in length, which is used by cyclists and pedestrians.
Valerie Thornton PortraitValerie Thornton was born in London in 1931 where she later studied art at the Regent Street Polytechnic School of Art from 1950-53. In 1954 she went to Paris and studied printmaking with the renowned teacher Stanley William Hayter at Atelier 17. Thornton then moved to New York where she spent two years at the Pratt Institute. Her first exhibition of etchings and watercolours was held in 1960.

Architectural subjects formed a major part of her artistic output throughout her career. Although Thornton occasionally tried abstract styles she most commonly employed representational elements in her work. Thornton’s work is to be found in several public collections both in Britain and America. She died in 1991.
