Cliftonville Margate, Shell Grotto and The Walpole Bay Hotel Museum, pictures and a few thoughts.

One of Cliftonville’s more unusual attractions is The Shell Grotto, its organs and age are uncertain, you can read about its history on The Shell Grotto website, click on the link to do so

It isn’t that easy to photograph, so apologies for some of the pictures, click on the link to view them anyway it’s well worth a visit as you can see.

We then went on to The Walpole Bay Hotel for cream tea and a visit to the museum there. The cream tea was excellent as was the museum experience click on the link for the pictures also here is the link to the hotel’s website

I hadn’t been to the shell grotto for a number of years and have to admit to going in the wrong direction so here are a few pictures taken of Cliftonville while I was lost

Frankly when one thinks of Cliftonville now one doesn’t expect to get a reasonable all weather afternoon out for the family, something we certainly managed.

A few pictures of Ramsgate yesterday here

Some of this morning here

The section of my latest publication on Westgate for Simon Moores who has had rather more flack from me than he deserves recently and did help to sort out some problems for me although he isn’t my councillor here

Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
