Deal - a rich history
There was a time, post World War 2, when Deal Borough Council, the forerunner of today's Town Council, was keen to demolish Deal's history and create a brave new concrete world where we all moved around in cars. This happened in some towns and cities. But not Deal. Thanks to The Deal Protection Society, with the help of well-known and distinguished supporters, the local and national press, along with a large number of residents, Deal was saved. The furore concentrated minds wonderfully: buildings were listed and in the late 1960s Middle Street was designated the first conservation area in Kent. Today we all, including Deal Town Council, appreciate the real value of our heritage and The Deal Protection Society still exists as The Deal Society. Our history echoes through our town in so many ways and we are lucky to have a number of history groups that are able to shed light on our heritage.
