My First Memories Of Saltfleet - a Memory of Saltfleet.

My first visit to Saltfleet was as a 12 year old in 1956. A relative , Kitty Scherdel was managing the Sunnydale site for local farmer George Tuxworth and had recently moved a converted bus there from South Yorkshire and we stayed in that. There was one other converted bus and 3 caravans on the site and a chicken hut.. The old lookout tower om the beach was still in good condition then, and the tide came right up to the sand bank once a month. You could paddle for miles. There was the remnants of WW1 baracks where my grandfather trained in 1915 which is now the site of the Sunnydale social club. My aunt Kitty later bought the field across the road and started her own site. George Tuxworth lived in a cottage across from the Crown and after he passed away his son George Jnr. Took over and built the shop/flat where he lived close to the beach.
