If you were born or just lived for a while in Herne Bay or Whitstable, you’d have heard at least a dozen of times about the big freeze – when the sea actually froze.

Numerous books, pictures and films have been published on the winters of 1947 and 1963 but these two videos are truly special. In the following video you can see the big freeze of 1963, featuring Whitstable and Herne Bay, where the sea froze for about half a mile.
