Granville House to under the hammer on the 18th December.

The freehold of the former Granville Hotel is to be sold by order of the receiver, I think this is the flats and what was the bar and associated function rooms, you can look at the sale item here and peruse the lot’s details here

What this means either in terms of the existing residents or in terms of the part that has become semi derelict I am not entirely sure. In many ways The Granville is another of those only in Thanet stories that has run for years and will probably run for many more.

The pictures in the post are of one of the function rooms in The Granville there are more of these pictures if you follow the links below.

Rather sad really, I am not sure where the fault lies, the freeholder, the lessee, the council for not enforcing some protection.

I publish a book about the history of The Granville, here is the link should you whish to read it and can’t get to my bookshop easily

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.
