Thanet, a local
government district of the county of Kent in southeast England, was formed in
1974 by the merger of the municipal boroughs of Margate (population about
57,000) and Ramsgate (population about 38,000), together with adjoining
areas. Both Margate and Ramsgate are coastal resorts, on the English Channel.
Thanet covers an area known as the Isle of Thanet, which, although originally
separated from the Kent mainland by the Wantsum Channel, is now practically joined to
the mainland as a result of the build up of silt and shingle.
