Dovercourt & Harwich Walk


Starting at 11am from our meeting point at the intersection of Marine Parade with Kingsway we will walk towards Harwich.  We plan to take in many of the local points of interest including Beacon Hill Beach.  This shingle beach stretches down from Beacon Cliffs in a southwesterly direction, just to the south of the estuaries of the Stour and Orwell rivers. The beach has views towards the cranes and industrial buildings of Felixstowe.  We will also visit Harwich Town and the New Skate Park, for those concrete admirers, as well as Redout Fort.

Dovercourt Bay is home to two cast iron lighthouses, the High and the Low lighthouses – one on the beach and one-off shore; they were in daily use until 1917 and restored in the 1980s. When standing on the high promenade above the beach, there are superb panoramic views over a wide expanse of the North Sea and neighbouring Felixstowe Point.  There are also a number of interesting Beach Huts.  We plan to be in this area for the sunset at 8:12pm.

There are plenty of places to eat on route and we will have regular tea stops.  Depending upon the number of attendees we may break up into smaller groups.

Whether you are new to photography or a seasoned photographer you are very welcome.  If you would like to stay the whole day, until around 9pm, or just spend a few hours then you can contact either of the organisers to find their current locations to meet up at a time that suits you.  

Although this is not a workshop there will be a small number of helpers on the day to assist with set ups and provide some suggestions for images. 

The aim is to enjoy being out taking pictures and to spend some time with other photographers.

We will set some tasks to help get those creative juices flowing and with the images taken on the day we will produce a Blog and a Gallery that will be featured on the RPS web site.
