Walk will look back on Bexhill adapted to the strains of World War One

On Sunday August 24 at 2 pm Bexhill Museum will set off on their latest guided walk: Stepping Out to Bexhill in World War One.

This walk will show how our town adapted to the circumstances of World War 1 and will show familiar day to day features in a new light.

Crowds massed in Town Hall Square, A tank maneuvering around the Polegrove, Canadian training squads in familiar roads and in Egerton Park, also the peculiarities of the war memorial and the effort of individuals and the streets they lived in will be explored.

The walk ends back at the museum and walkers can visit the World War One exhibition before closing time.

Meet at Bexhill Museum, Egerton Road The distance is about 2 1/2 miles taking about 2 1/2 hours.

here is a charge of £3.00 for adults and £1.50 for accompanied children. Sorry no dogs.

Following the washout of the walk to Buckholt Farm on 20 July, we are thinking of rescheduling to the 21 September.

The remaining walks in our 2014 programme will be Belgian Refugees in Bexhill during the First World War on September 14 and Horses a Hundred Years Ago on October 5.
