Description


Lectures On Sea returns with a Garrison Walk with accalimed historian and author Judith Williams. One hundred and fifty years ago, the army chose Shoeburyness as an ideal site to trial their new guns and ammunition at long ranges. Since 1859, Shoebury was at the forefront of testing weapons.


Echoes of the soldiers’ daily lives are found in the remaining barrack blocks, original hospital buildings and the officers’ cricket pavilion.

This walk, a leisurely stroll lasting about one hour, will introduce you to the historic military features on the site, and bring to life memories of the thousands of men and women who lived and worked there over the years.

The walk will begin at the original entrance to the barracks at the south end of the High Street (outside the Shoeburyness Hotel) at 10am for 10.30am start.
