Harwich Town Council again supported National Heritage Weekend by opening the historic Guildhall to the public free of charge.
The Guildhall was open to the public from 2.30PM -4.30PM on both Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th September to view the Napoleonic carvings cut into the wooden walls by French prisoners around 200 years ago.
As part of the Guildhall opening Harwich Town Council’s honorary archivists, Ray Plummer and Anne Kemp-Luck staged an exhibition in the council chamber featuring important local historic anniversaries as well as significant documents including the original King James I charter of 1604.
Ray Plummer says “The Guildhall is a fascinating building and houses Harwich Town Council’s remarkable archive. It is always a pleasure to stage this exhibition and to bring Harwich’s incredible history to life for our visitors.”
