Fifty years ago, an Act of Parliament was passed which enabled Councils to designate Conservation Areas. Within months, Middle Street Conservation area in Deal was created – the first in Kent and one of the first in the country.
To commemorate the anniversary of conservation areas, The Deal Society is showing an exhibition in the Deal Maritime and Local History Museum, from Tuesday 13 June to Sunday 25 June, to explain the history of conservation areas and why they are still important.
Tuesday 7 November at 7.30 pm in Deal Town Hall
