West Is Best

There's a lot of talk these days about the East Cliff here in Ramsgate, but there are some great things to see for those who are prepared to venture out west.

Pugin's house, for example, and the IOTA Gallery. And that amazing little caff called The Lookout, which seems as if it's been frozen in time since 1948 (although fortunately for me the cakes are no longer rationed). The people you see in there are real old time Ramsgatonians, who can remember the days when the old place was rather posh and well-to-do. Plus you get a better view of the ferries from the West Cliff, if that's your thing.

Shame about West Cliff Hall, though. It appears to have been left to go to rack and ruin since the motor museum moved out. Not that it was much chop before that. Does it belong to the council?

I believe it does belong to them, so perhaps best not to hold out too much hope for it!

Well it's a crying shame. A facility like that should be opened up and used for the public good in some way. Wasn't it Nethercourt who said he'd seen Sir Mick F*ck-Off and his boys there once?

Not sure but I know they played there.
