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
collections are displayed at two sites:
Building on last year’s great success in entering James Stevens No.14 into the Great River Race we will be entering again this year with the stated aim of completing the race under oars.
In 2013 we raised £1600 towards James Stevens No.14’s running costs and plan to improve on that this year.
Anybody with an interest in taking part can book a place on board.
The entry costs are around £60 and in addition there is an expectation that every crew member will raise at least £250 in sponsorship.
If you fail to meet this then you will have to top it up to the £250. We are planning to return to Walton on the Sunday or Monday tide & weather depending.
Places are limited so book your place early!
As a registered charity, Frinton & Walton Heritage Trust success depends upon the
dedication and enthusiasm of its membership, as well as the generosity of the wider
public. Details of our regular fundraising and social events can be found on our
page; if you would like to pledge a donation directly please let us know. We also
requests, visitor feedback and are particularly keen to hear if you have something
that may be of interest for our archives/collections.
Frinton & Walton Heritage Trust is extremely grateful to all who have contributed,
by whatever means, to its success over the past 30 years. Only with your support
can the Trust continue to protect local heritage for the enjoyment of present and
