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

Nayland Rock shelter, Margate

A seaside shelter in which the poet TS Eliot composed one of his most famous works has been given listed status.

The Nayland Rock shelter on Margate seafront, Kent, is where he regularly sat while staying in the town in 1921 to recuperate from a nervous breakdown.
