A Suffolk Walking Festival Event http://www.suffolkwalkingfestival.co.uk/

As part of our 100-year commemorations of the end of WW1, this walk encapsulates the story of German U-Boat surrender at Harwich, following their attack on the Royal Naval Training Establishment HMS Ganges.

The walk begins with a 10-minute introductory talk at the Ganges Museum and includes a 1-hour visit to St Mary’s Church and the Submariners’ memorial, WW1 graves and Commonwealth War Graves, returning via the River Orwell embankment.

This walk proved a great success in November 2018, and we are thrilled to be able to expand it this Spring in partnership with Shotley Open Spaces, as part of the 2019 Suffolk Walking Festival.

The walk will become part of the areas ongoing open spaces offer- with a new printed guide for self guided-walks available from late Spring 2019.

Walk no. 41

Distance: 5.5 miles
