Announcing Ramsgate, the first publication in the Historic England and Liverpool University Press partnership

Liverpool University Press is pleased to announce the publication of the first book in our partnership with Historic England, Ramsgate: The Town and its Seaside Heritage by Geraint Franklin, with Nick Dermott and Allan Brodie.

This attractively-illustrated book casts new light on Ramsgate’s rich maritime and seaside heritage. It charts the resort’s growth – and its colourful architectural heritage – over the past 300 years. The book will appeal to a wide audience, particularly readers with an interest in the history and popular culture of the English seaside.

Below is a small selection from the many beautiful images used in the book, taken by Chris Redgrave for Historic England.
