Ramsgate, a port and seaside resort in the Isle of Thanet and county of Kent, 79 miles S.E. of London. It has two fine piers enclosing a large area of anchorage with wet and dry docks, and accommodation for four hundred vessels. A municipal charter was granted in 1884. There is a considerable trade in coals, timber, and provisions, and a large fleet of Ashing boats is maintained. The long stretch of sands, extending southwards to Pegwell Bay, affords excellent bathing.

“Since the fall, God will not trust us with our own salvation, but it is both purchased and kept by Christ for us, and we for it through faith, wrought by the power of God.”
