Thanet and Sandwich coastal finds.

In recent years there has been a lot of active beach-combing  in the Thanet area around  Margate to Broadstairs, Ramsgate and Sandwich. The finds have been astonishing , especially at Margate where items  originating from the Victorian and Edwardian Thames paddle  are often found with frequent occurrence. Beach-combing for historic items  has now become a very popular pastime in the area with many good finds being recorded.
On facebook , a group has now been set up by the Thanet beach-combing community dedicated to these finds  from the coastal area. Some group members have even built up large collections of beach-combed items.

 The group is known on facebook as the Thanet and Sandwich coastal finds , the group is easy to join and gives regular updates on coastal activity and finds from the southeast corner of the english coast.
