Historical characters help to launch Heritage Trail

First walkers enjoy the Town Heritage Trail

Flags were flying all over town on Saturday (July 1) as Brightlingsea Museum launched its new Town Heritage Trail.

The first people to walk the trail were led by former High Sheriff of Essex, now Deputy Lieutenant, Julie Fosh Rogers, and sent off with some encouraging words from MP Sir Bernard Jenkin. Town Mayor Jayne Chapman and the Deputy and Lady Deputy, Frank and Win Pomroy also came to support the launch.

Around the town, the walkers encountered some historic characters and could view special posters in the shop windows of days gone by. On their return they were greeted with cool drinks and a special certificate.

The Trail is packed with information and pictures, a mini guide book to the history of our town, with longer and shorter routes and another to avoid muddy or uneven paths. It is available now from the museum for just £1. See www.brightlingseamuseum.co.uk for opening times.
