A great opportunity to blow the cobwebs away after the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
Come and join us on January 5th for a walk around Walberswick with an old friend of the group Rob Liddiard to look at the archaeology of the Second World War coastal defences. Rob is the co-author of A Guide to Second World War Archaeology in Suffolk and although the Second World War is the main theme of the walk, I’m sure Rob will find plenty of other things to show us from the Iron Age onwards. I’m pleased to say that we will also be joined by Lara Band of CITiZAN who gave us a guided tour of the intertidal archaeology back in May and I hope she will be able to point out more features for us.
The walk will start at 10.00am and we’ll meet at Hoist Covert car park, Lodge Road, Walberswick IP18 6UX. This is a free car park.
Remember this will be the beginning of January, so please dress for the weather. Walking boots are recommended. We should finish around 12.30 to 1.00 and the Bell is just around the corner and with a bit of luck Old will be on.
If you want to find out more about the defences of Walberswick before we go, have a look at Walberswick – Coastal Defences of World War 2.
