War-time Naze tour for Frinton and Walton youngsters
3:30pm Friday 9th November 2012 in News
YOUNGSTERS were taken on an educational tour of wartime facilities in Walton.
Schoolchildren from Frinton Primary School, Walton Primary School and Hamford Primary Academy visited the Naze.
They were shown around Second World War facilities in the area including surviving pillboxes and a former missile testing range by local historians.
Essex County Council heritage education officer Sarah Girling said: “The visit was a chance for pupils to really understand how national and international events impacted their local community.
“The Naze itself was inhabited by the army and the RAF, making it their home for the duration of the war.”
The visits were part of a council-run heritage project.
