Thanks to funding from Dover District Council, The History Project are able to run a video project capturing peoples memories of key events from the town’s history.

Some of the topics they hope to cover are:

  • Memories of Deal during World War Two
  • The Great Storm of 1978 in Deal
  • Old Pubs, Cinemas and Clubs of Deal
  • Old Shops and Deal Town
  • The Royal Marines Heritage – building the bandstand, the world(!) famous RM Pantos, the rifle range
  • Coal mining in the area
  • Deal Boatmen

If you would like to share any of your memories, please contact them at
