3rd August: The end of an era - the break-up of the Westgate-on-Sea Estate
An illustrated talk by Dr Dawn Crouch. On 30th August 1919 a grand auction was held at the Station Hotel of all the building land of the Westgate-on- Sea Estate including the Golf Courses and the Hundred Farm. It was the beginning of the end of the Estate, which gradually disposed of all its other property and the roads, sea walls and public spaces. The Heritage Centre opens at 10am when homemade refreshments are on sale.
