Deventer, Devon and Cornwall recording a wrecked ship

CITiZAN Guided Walk: Ships at Sunrise - The Dart's Hidden Hulked Heritage

Old Mill Creek, Old Mill Lane, Dartmouth, TQ6 0HN

Time: 08.00-10.00

Price: Free

As part of our series of winter walks from our CITiZAN team, this tidal trail takes you around the remains of a variety of hulks looking at the question of how and why ships become dumped in the estuaries all around the UK.

The trail guided by CITiZAN maritime archaeologists moves through the creeks and inlets of old mill creek, telling the stories, history and mysteries of the vessels lying on the rivers banks to the backdrop of the Dart estuary at low tide as the sun rises.

Parking is on street and very limited so car sharing is recommended.

The vessels lie in a very muddy environment, so please wear appropriate footwear.

Tickets are available to book in advance via Eventbrite.
