It's a shame that it can't be replaced with something, a lovely, well kept, maintained facility would be an asset there. Shame it will become flat concreate.

Got some happy memories of this place, mostly from the late 80s when it was run by a really nice oldish guy who, as a five-year-old, I simply called 'Little Man'. However, time moves on and it always seemed to struggle to recapture that same magic. 

I had high hopes when the guy from Coryton's cafe took it over three or so years back, but perhaps the upkeep of a pretty basic building battling against the ravages of the sea just didn't stack up financially. 

I hope they make a tidy job of the demolition. Perhaps the patio space it will create could be used for some benches looking out to sea, although there's a risk that a big communal seating area could attract the Happy Hut crew.
