Thanet is a wedge sticking out into the Channel. Like a chisel or a doorstop. Margate is just short of the point beyond which you can go no further- unless you have a boat, of course. We walked to the end of the stone pier yesterday afternoon. Water on three sides and walls you could trip over. It made me feel giddy- even though I was standing well back.
