Not much going on at the Towers offices today, all done and dusted by 1100 so into the mighty NV200 and off to Pegwell Bay ( Ramsgate) to see if the cliffs had survived the winter storms. The ones at Reculver to the east of Margate were gently crumbling onto the beach at the last visit a few weeks ago. The Pegwell ones, being chalk rather than clay and sand soil layers should, hopefully, be more resilient.
As it happened they were, resilient that is. All was well other than the place seemed deserted and forlorn (apart from the Belle View pub which was throbbing well enough with lunchtime punters) and the chain saw gangs have removed a rather beautiful area of green and trees in front of the Regency Buildings. Vandals or developers. Or are they indeed the same thing so very often?
It’s no beauty but the in its early days it would have been magnificent. About three acres of trees removed. Sad.
Pegwell Caravan Park, gets the juices flowing doesn’t it.
The Belle View, busy it seems, and well looked after. Not like its neighbour.
Pegwell High Street, no people, cars, life.
Pegwell Cliffs, still standing.
