VISIT TO HARWICH AND DEDHAM IN ESSEX
By coach on Saturday, July 2nd, 2016

The port of Harwich, on the south side of the estuary of the River Stour, is a significant place in England’s maritime history.  It once possessed a major dockyard of the Royal Navy, it was the original home of the Mayflower and of its master, Christopher Jones, before their removal to Rotherhithe, and it was represented in Parliament in the 1680s by none other than Samuel Pepys, who was a leading figure in the development of the Royal Navy after the Restoration.  Dedham is an attractive small town upstream on the Stour, prosperous in the Middle Ages from the cloth trade, with a very fine late mediaeval church.  John Constable attended school in the town and there is a museum dedicated to the life and work of Sir Alfred Munnings. 
COST: £30

The coach will leave from the Old Vic at Waterloo at 8.45 a.m.
