Firstly I’d like to point out to any detractors that Ramsgate is a luvverly place with very reasonably priced fish and chips, a nice harbour, a few good pubs, Rookes the butchers, and it’s home to the O & M (operations and maintenance) HQs for two of the UK’s largest offshore windfarms, namely Thanet and London Array.
Allatsea was wandering about the place t’other day when firstly he was taken by the road-sign pictured below, strange driving habits in this town folks, very strange. At least I thought it strange until allatsea mucker/comrade/colleague/fellow bon viveur Geoff pointed out that when 40 tonne lorries (as was their want prior to the opening of the dedicated port access road) came round the corner by the Churchill Pub, they were indeed, in the middle of the road.
Couldn’t but help notice the difference between the respective O&M HQs, they’re next door to each other. The First picture below is of the Thanet O&M, the second, the London Array O&M.
For those that are interested, please see the link below for the Wikipedia ‘Ramsgate Harbour’ page. Fannit will fank you for it.
