Just a Walk in the Park


A few pictures here from yesterday’s walk in King George VI Park Ramsgate, nothing very exciting, this park was once the gardens for Eastcliff Lodge, pictured in the painting by Turner above.

As the home of Moses Montefiore I would guess that it had potential as a heritage site, but of course it was long ago knocked down by the council, the coach house, gatehouse and Italianate greenhouse are still there.    

Here is the link to the pictures http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/212/id10.htm     


Still loosely on the subject of Turner the Turner Contemporary has put a camera on the gallery roof to record the skies over Margate below the two videos they have made.

Post a Comment

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
