Whitstable History Tour (Paperback)

£7.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

'Whitstable is a stirring little town, with strong business proclivities, and a history stretching far back into the remote past.' So wrote a Kentish Gazette correspondent in 1873, although he could have been describing the north Kent seaside town today. Over the years, the lives of townspeople have been sustained by sea salt production, diving, smuggling, shipbuilding and fishing, along with copperas mining and tourism.



In this pocket-sized guide, author Kerry Mayo takes readers on a fascinating tour around Whitstable's streets and buildings, showing how its famous landmarks used to look and how they have changed over the years, as well as exploring some of its lesser-known sights and hidden corners. With the help of a handy location map, readers are invited to discover for themselves the history and the changing face of the town.

Kerry Mayo, a freelance photographer local to Whitstable, has built a career around capturing seascapes and landscapes of the picturesque town in which she lives. A published writer, Kerry is a member of Whitstable Women Writers group and has featured work in their anthology, The People's Friend and two local interest websites. She has also compiled two novels, which are currently being considered by publishing agents. In her spare time, Kerry loves researching about the town's history and over the years has developed a strong network of contacts to rely on for historical sources and facts. Not only is she well known in the town, but it is from a few select friends she has acquired during years of research that she will be obtaining a portion of her old photograph collection from for the title.
