OUTREACH: Guided Walk - Berry Head
Wed 19 July 2017, 10:00 – 13:00 BST
Berry Head is a promontory which has long been utilised for its natural defences, today it is peaceful national nature reserve but a couple of hundred years ago the promontory was buzzing with the English Army as one of the many fortifications built at the turn of the 19th century in response to the threat of the French and Napolean.
Dr Philip Armitage will be leading a guided walk for CITiZAN on Berry Head. The walk will take approximately two and a half hours and will explore the military occupation of Berry Head, from the first installation of the Victorian Fort to the WWII defences. We will be meeting at 1000 outside the cafe on Wednesday 19th July 2017.
