This is very much a guide in the style of the time as you can see from the sample pages.
I do publish some other Birchington books, recommended are the following:
A History of the Ville of Birchington by J. P. Barrett although published in 1893, so it predates the previous 120 years of Birchington’s history, this is one of the best of Thanet’s Victorian local history books and I would say a must for anyone interested in our local history.

Dangerous Coastline 1939 – 1945 By Derek S. Hart.
This book is about the Second World War seen through the eyes of a child growing up in Birchington.
He tells of finding mines on the beach, the spectacle of the Battle of Britain being fought in the skies above and includes humorous anecdotes involving some of the troops.

Obviously Birchington features in several of the other local books I publish and I often have secondhand copies of other books about Birchington, so I recommend coming to the shop and having a look at the local books if you can. The shop is open from 9.30 to 5.30 but closed Sundays and Wednesdays.
