News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

The map from 1871-1890 only shows a Coastguard Staion at Minster ???
And shows it Disused by 1897.

Wasn't there some kind of camp at Minster Leas consisting of Tents ???

Or could it be Minster,Thanet.
Maybe it's big horse I'm a Londoner. :{
