Join us for a guided walk across Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe NNR in Lincolnshire, exploring 'Operation Harpoon'; the German plan, in 1940/1941, to seize Britain's northern powerhouse.

This walk will explore this plan, as well as consider how the British intended to fight the battle to stop them at Sea View, a critical route off the invasion beaches.

Two sessions will be run during the day. Max 20 people per session.

Meet at Rimac Car Park (LN11 7TS, Grid Ref TF 467 917)

This talk and walk will take approximately 2-3 hours.
