there is a big motorway service area where you can do that almost at the door , it's the first one on the motorway as you go towards london ...it isn't free but it sure is convenient , lots of truckers seem to use it for waiting for the tunnel

and free wifi anywhere in the shopping arcada , just sit at a table [ common tables for all the fast food joints ] and help yourself

the Millitary Canal in the centre of HYTHE. Very obliging landlord & a nice
Hope this is of use.

Hi Stubby - yes the lay by is still there and there is a road side burger bar as well during the day. But hey - better than that if you come off at M20 Junction 11 coastbound - at the roundabout take the first exit signed towards Canterbury - after half a mile turn left signed Stanford North and immediately on the RHS is a pub called The Drum - they advertise camping behind the pub - their number is 01303 812125 - give them a call - would be pleased to know their reply. GPS 51'06"17"' N 001'02"26"' E.

Hope that helps.
