Wow, those photographs are fantastic!

I spoke to my Mum about the winter of 62/63, and she said that the wintry conditions lasted until Easter! Such a shame we don't have PROPER winters like that anymore.

There are some photos of the frozen sea upstairs in the Peter Cushing in Whitstable - I think the year was 1929.

All these were taken from the esplanade at Sheerness in 1963.

and probably the best one with the fair in the background complete with big wheel and roller coaster

Makes me shiver just to look at them :)
