A Trip to Margate Shell Grotto

I took to a trip margate two weeks ago and visited the Shell Grotto.
Its a beautiful place.
I noticed pencil graffiti from the Victorian era including love notes and visitors initials.

Ghostly echoes  traveled round corners from other day trippers.

'The Shell Grotto is an ornate subterranean passageway in Margate, Kent.Almost all the surface area of the walls and roof are covered in mosaics created entirely of seashells,totaling about 2,000 square feet of mosaic,or 4.6 million shells.It was discovered in 1835 but its age remains unknown.'
