History of Ramsgate Village:
Paul Buck, described as a painter, violin maker, writer and sailor is acclaimed as being Ramsgate’s first settler, but, some 25 years before he arrived in the 1920’s a sea captain by the name of Cromton had already discovered the beauty of the area. Crompton, having “swallowed the anchor” as the saying goes, had established a trading store a short distance inland in an area he called Fascadale, after the ship of the same name that had been wrecked southwards of the Imbizane river at Southbroom in 1895. Buck made his home on the southern banks of the Blue Lagoon and although he obviously favoured the lifestyle of a recluse his hospitality afforded any passing traveller made him a legend in these parts.
