I have received this email can anybody help.
I’m a researcher on the BBC2 programme Coast and I was hoping you could help me. I’m trying to find out more about the story that Admiral Lord Keith built a tunnel from his grounds at George VI park to the beach so he could get on his boat and travel out to sea. Do you know much about that? Or would you be able to point me in the direction of someone who does know? My phone number is 0121 567 6288, or if you’d like to email me your phone number then I can call you.
Any time you could spare would be most appreciated.

In all the years I have been digging around the coast I suppose one the hardest items to find are glass bottles that are over 100 years old and intact. In fact I have found more gold items than complete glass bottles in my time. So I was rather hoping that during the underpinning of the Margate stone pier that complete bottles may turn up in the freshly excavated silt. To date this does not seem to be the case and only one complete bottle has came to light. Found by one of the metal detector guys it is an embossed NAAFI bottle that can be dated after 1921 when the NAAFI was founded.
