Harwich Heritage TrailsAnytime Orienteering

Type of course: Virtual

We have two MapRun courses in Harwich.

Both courses utilise permanent information boards detailing the history of Harwich. The Harwich Heritage Short course uses the large Tendring Council Heritage Trail boards. The longer Harwich Society Trail uses the Maritime Heritage Trail information boards and plaques. Some of these are quite small. More details about the history of Harwich can be found here Maritime Heritage Trail - The Harwich Society (harwich-society.co.uk)
