Last Chance to Visit the Changing Coast Exhibition back by Popular Demand

 You will be amazed by this free exhibition exploring and comparing historic images and postcards and current images from our ever-changing coastline.  This exhibition also highlights recent tidal and weather extremes and links up with the Coastal Communities and Climate Change project, and is run with support from the CC2150.

Historical pictures fade into up to date photos showing the same view. Many of us have forgotten how things have changed. Cliff arches to chalk stacks. Chalk stacks and meandering cliffs of Birchington to smoothed lines of sea defences and much more.

Remember the storm of 1953 and when the sea froze over in the sixties.  These are compared with recent extreme weather and tidal surges.

The exhibition closed on Friday for the Dreamland exhibition but returns on Tuesday 2nd September until 7th September. It is held in the Drum Room, Droit House, Margate harbour   CT9 1JD. Doors open 10 am to 5 pm. Just go into the tourist information office and walk through to the back. The rolling exhibition lasts about 45 minutes.
