This is the old family coach , that spent 50 years in the barn at East Northdown Cottage , home of the last Northdown Coachman , Jack Durst and then his daughter Winnie Conway from the time that Northdown Park was given to the Borough of Margate in 1937 until the sale of the cottage , following the Conway’s death in 1985 . Mr. Miles acquired the Coach from us on the premise that he was going to restore it as the focal point of the proposed Coach House Museum . No such Museum ever opened , and the fate of the coach is unknown.
