Open event 25th Feb

Harwich’s 58 Ships research project is holding an open event on 25th February at Harwich Museum. The project aims to discover the history behind each of the naval vessels listed on a board outside Harwich’s historic Navyard. Members of the local community have already adopted a vessel to further the research but many other vessels await to be adopted. Our volunteer researchers do not need to have any experience and do not need to be local to Harwich in order to take part

The open event runs from 2pm to 4pm on Saturday 25th February at Harwich Museum on Main Road, Harwich. Further information: [email protected]
