Golden Sands, Mablethorpe


This tale is a nostalgic blend of memoir and imagination, inspired by generations of my family and their quintessentially British seaside caravan holidays on the East coast. 


It’s also about a special caravan, lovingly hand-built by great granddad in the 1950s. 


Some seventy years later, during those dark and difficult “you must stay at home” days of the pandemic, we did stay at home; and that neglected old van became our practical life-affirming lockdown project and became a lovingly restored unique family heirloom vintage caravan.
