Home of the Beach Hut....

Two Tiers of Beach Huts Here...
Bournemouth really is the home of the beach hut. 
It was here on Bournemouth's seafront way back in 1909, that the first municipal beach hut was built.
That particular beach hut number 2359 is still in use, all 7ft X 7ft of it. 
Over the years beach huts have become a bit of a British Institution with an estimated 20,000 situated along the British coastline. 
Nearly 2,000 of those can be found here in Bournemouth....
