03/03/15 Parkgate Community Spirit in Action

On Monday 18th April 2017, eleven volunteers spent a productive two hours clearing the weeds and grass from the South slip and the stretch of alleyway that runs along the seawall from South slip towards Manorial Road.  They filled over 70 bags of soil and grass as they uncovered six steps, but an old photograph (below left) shows there are still another 10 steps buried!!

A small section from Susan Chambers WW1 article of June 1915

The photo on the left shows all 16 steps - as steps. Following the request of A.G.Grenfell in 1915 (above), the recent photo on the right shows the 9 feet of slope on the seaward side of the South slip.
