A few pictures relating to the maintenance of Ramsgate Harbour from around 1910 sketching in Margate and Wasup
Well the Defence of the Nation Museum is moving from Ramsgate Tunnels to the Monkey House, if you understood that then you qualify for reading the rest of the post.
Thanet, Canterbury and Dover council seem to be moving towards joining together to form one big council, having been to two local seaside towns recently, Deal run by Dover council and Herne Bay run by Canterbury council I suppose there is some chance that Ramsgate may be better off if this happens. My feelings here being along the lines of I believe what they say less than what they have done.
Dover have got the government funding £200m to do up Dover Docks which could be a bit of a blow to commercial dock activity at The Port of Ramsgate.
Next the Ramsgate Harbour pictures which show the running of one of the sluices, which is the way the mud used to be cleared from the outer harbour, the damage caused by doing this and the way repairs were carried out around 100 years ago.
On to Margate
This should be an animation of the sun setting over Margate I took the photos from Turner Contemporary today and then realised that it does't look particularly like Margate
