Have you ever wondered how the Great Lines Heritage Park got its name? Want to find out more about Chatham Dockyard and its Defences?

Residents are invited to attend a free master class to find out more about Chatham’s outstanding heritage.

Organised by The Chatham World Heritage Partnership, the master class will take place on Monday, 13 June, at the Royal Engineers Museum, Gillingham from 7pm to 8.15pm.

There will be opportunities to ask questions and find out about Chatham’s bid to become a future World Heritage Site. Topics will include “What is a World Heritage Site?” and “Why Chatham’s heritage is beyond compare” as well as plans for the Great Lines Heritage Park and information on how to get involved.
Light refreshments will be served from 6pm.

Speakers will include Lindsey Morgan, Chair of the Chatham World Heritage Partnership, Joanne Cable, Chatham World Heritage Manager, and Peter Kendall, from English Heritage.

Lindsey Morgan said: “The Chatham World Heritage Partnership is already hugely popular, with over 900 members, but there is always room for new faces and I look forward to welcoming everyone to the meeting”.
