Ramsgate Sea Front Shelters August 2019
In May 2011 The Ramsgate Society took on the job of renovating fourteen Victorian Sea Front Shelters that had fallen into disrepair. The Society raised around £540,000 to undertake the work with grants from The Heritage Lottery Fund, The Sainsbury Foundation and other grant making bodies. As part of the scheme Thanet District Council granted a lease to the Society with an obligation to maintain the shelters in good condition.
