Finally My Sandbanks Lens Is Taking Shape

Sandbanks Beach Sign At Sandbanks Pavilion Sandbanks Poole DorsetFinally a long two years after the initial creation of my Squidoo lens about Sandbanks, I have managed to make progress on it and to see it taking shape.

Sandbanks is a sandy peninsula that is only a mile from where I grew up in Poole, Dorset, on the south coast of England, and in recent years it has become a place for the wealthy to buy homes, most properties there being valued in the millions.

We used to have a beach hut at Sandbanks, and I spent many glorious summer days at the beach when I was younger, but now they have turned into memories of yesteryear, since only by winning the lottery jackpot could I ever hope to live close to there again.

This lens on Sandbanks is a look back at the Sandbanks of yesterday, with memories of the 1950’s and 1960’s when we had family homes there, and also from the end of the 19th century, when Sandbanks was used by Marconi for early wireless experiments.

I hope you enjoy this look at Sandbanks as it was then and it is now.

My apologies if you find the lens incomplete, but I hope that if it is, you will come back and see the finished article in a few days.
