Established in 1984, Frinton & Walton Heritage Trust exists to consolidate historical
knowledge of the local area and provide public access to the archives, artefacts
and exhibits that tell the story of our community’s past. Currently, the Trust’s

A Brief History and Guide
Frinton & Walton Heritage Trust
The History Group of Frinton & Walton Heritage Trust became aware of a need not only for a concise history of the
town but also a guide for visitors and residents alike. This new publication tells the story of Frinton from
its early beginnings as well as how the present appearance of the town came about, thus setting in context the
‘old and the new’ in one publication.
This hardback book of 68 pages includes pencil sketches by local artists, together with sketch maps of
the area and town and is priced at £9.95.
The book will be launched on Saturday, 11 June, 2016 at the Trust’s headquarters in Frinton.
Come along to the Cottage Garden, Station Approach, between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.
where there will be an exhibition on Frinton and an opportunity to buy the book
and also copies of the artists’ sketches. There will be a discount of £1 on
each book for Trust members. Tea and coffee will also be available and the
Railway Museum will be open from mid-day.
After the launch the book will be available at The Cottage on Tuesday mornings,
The Walton Maritime Museum and via the Trust’s website,
You will also be able to purchase the book from Caxton Bookshop in Connaught
Avenue and Parkers Nursery, Walton Road, but without member’s discount. An order form can aslo be downloaded
