Amongst the recent finds from the past week is another piece of a Baluster from the Balustrade that surrounded the 1829 Lighthouse that was lost in the 1953 storm. I have taken a few photographs of the recent find and have posted them on the left.
Pictured is the joint that fixed the Baluster into the stone work and also present are traces of the original mortar.
The Friends of the Margate Museum in the near future will be staging an exhibition of all the storms that have battered Margate , along with photographs and accounts of the storms to coincide with the sea defence works. All my finds will be part of that exhibition and all the significant finds will be donated to the Margate Museum.
