Secret Ramsgate by Andy Bull
With tales of remarkable characters, unusual events and buildings lost or hidden, and fully illustrated with photography, Secret Ramsgate will appeal to all those with an interest in the history of this town in Kent.
Andy Bull reveals the hidden history of Ramsgate, from the landing of Roman invasion forces and St Augustine’s mission, Thomas Becket’s links with nearby Sandwich, the famous writers who lived in or regularly visited the town such as Wilkie Collins, Jane Austen, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, to the secret harbour built at Richborough to transport munitions during World War 1.
In our Ramsgate shop we have had lots of people saying they found things they didn't know, which surprised them!
