As you can see from this old photo little has changed, the curved wall that we lean against to gaze out to sea is still there, the biggest change being the add-on apartments to the right where a tea house and restaurant were. Take a look at this photo where you can see those buildings and the same cliff and do have a look at the ladies in their finery to the left!
It's hard not to feel a real connection with a time gone by after finding these photographs online and matching the up with today. Miss CCL and I touch the stairs leading down the beach knowing that ladies in long skirts and children wearing their Sunday best ventured down these stairs as we do several times a week (we love the beach, have I said!).
St. Margarets apartments were quite run down over the years, but a few years ago they had a welcome facelift to look like new again and with them being right on the coast's edge facing west, the owners have an enviable view of the sunset every clear night, it is one of my favourite places to watch it too.
