The New Playground of Kent: Greatstone and Littlestone Then and Now

Many are familiar with Dungeness, but few are so aware of the charms of its neighbouring coastal villages. This is a shame, as they have a lot to offer and have fascinating – albeit short – histories. At the turn of the twentieth century, anyone who was anyone in high society was a member of Littlestone Golf Club. Many bought second homes here just to play the course, and part-time residents included serving and former Prime Ministers, members of the judiciary and even a Hollywood starlet.

This book, by local author Keith Swallow, which also encompasses the satellite villages of Lade and Lydd-on-Sea traces the history of this unique part of Romney Marsh and the individuals who have shaped its development.
