'The Vale', a history of Vale Square in Ramsgate by Stephen Davies
The Vale - the story of four Acres, three Rods and 38 Perches in the Isle of Thanet since 1839.........this is an intricately detailed history of Vale Square on the west cliff of Ramsgate. 'The Vale' has been the home of writer Stephen Davies for 40 years. In this finely produced softback book, he tells the story of the Square, from the earliest drawn plans to the inhabitants of each property around the central gardens. It is a fascinating portrayal of the changing times and the resiliance with which the nature of this beautiful area has been retained throughout 180 years.
The book is in its second impression, with minor updates by the author.
