How much was a beach hut?

For those like me who enjoy trivia ... in 1970 you could hire a beach hut in Sandown, Isle of Wight for between 45 and 75 shillings (now £2.25 and £3.75) depending on the season. A larger hut would cost an additional 10 shillings (50 pence). This included the hire of two deckchairs. Bringing your own chairs was strictly forbidden.

In those days the sun always shone on the Isle of Wight in August. I wonder if it still does?

I was last in England to help my sister move back after attending Manchester for a year. We were in Bath and it rained until it flooded the river. Our next stop was to be Shakespeare's stomping grounds on the same river, therefore same flooding. We couldn't face it and took the next train in the opposite direction which took us to the Isle of Wight where the sun shone delightfully!
