|Outside Navyyard Wharf in Historic Harwich is a board that lists 58 ships built there from 1660. What’s the story behind these ships?|
Unfortunately the board is mounted directly behind a chain link fence but is still legible if you get close enough! Click the image above for a larger version.
The aim of this project is to research the 58 ships listed on this board plus explore cultural connections to the vessels and the sailors who served on them.
