Let’s Move To …. Shanklin

Get your favourite haunts or pet hates about the seaside town into the Guardian today and it could feature this weekend

Thanks to VB reader Tracey Cummins for alerting us to a forthcoming Shanklin feature in Saturday’s Guardian.

Each week the broadsheet runs a ‘Let’s Move To …’ feature based on input from readers.

They get an inside view on what it’s like to live in a certain area of the UK and share it with their readers.

This coming Saturday, they’ll be featuring Shanklin and have asked readers to share their favourite haunts or pet hates about the seaside town.

If you have something positive to add to the feature, write today to lets.move@guardian.co.uk and it may be included.

See last week’s feature.

          Actually it is the entry road to Seacroft Hotel who own it but the proprietor allows pedestrians along it who often abuse her when she drives her own car down it, but the interesting aspect are the ammonites & carved stones set in the wall.

          Interesting trivia about the Summerland Amusement Arcade – it used to be a seaplane shed at Bembridge for The Nizam of Hyderbad’s Own Squadron. Beat that for obscurity.
