Ramsgate Society, who provide the plaques, have information on their website and will no doubt update it as the new plaques are unveiled.

Hi All,

I seem to remember seeing a Blue Plaque in Royal Road in Ramsgate (the sea end, opposite the tennis courts), however I can't remember who its for, Google Street View isn't showing enough detail and a search on google is showing mixed info.

Now thinking about it, I have a funny feeling my dad told me about this one a few years ago.  I think he may have said it wasn't an official one.  Does this ring any bells with you?

I'm fairly certain this plaque is to denote where Vincent van Gogh taught English whilst staying in Ramsgate. I'll take a closer look next time I visit.

Vincent van Gogh lodged at 11a Spencer Square when he was teaching at Mr Stokes's school, 6 Royal Road in 1876.
Karl Marx stayed at 62 Plains of Waterloo.

My humble apologies for the typo (now corrected). I couldn't search on your link but this one should take you there ... http://openplaques.org/plaques/3648.
So who has got it right?

Excellent stuff Phil.

Why shouldn't our home town get the credit, where due.

I can recommend Frank Muir's book... http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1312766.A_Kentish_Lad an excellent read. Wink
