Historic Havering by Vintage Bus

The Land of the Fanns has run two previous DiscoverME trips and is now able to offer people the opportunity to join another day of discovery in a special Historic Havering tour. Fans of vintage transport and lovers of history will not want to miss the event which takes place on Saturday 9 July and will see passengers travelling in style in a 1950’s single decker bus.

Beginning at the Thames Chase Forest Centre at 10am, the Historic Havering round trip visits five properties to reveal their history and connections to the landscape. Those properties are the Old Chapel built in 1800 as a Protestant Dissenters Chapel, Upminster Windmill dating from 1803 and one of the best remaining English smock mills, Havering Museum housed in the old Romford Brewery and the 15th century Tithe Barn in Upminster. The tour returns to Thames Chase Forest Centre on the site of Broadfields Farm with a grade II listed barn and a Victorian stable block.

DiscoverME celebrates the heritage and tells the tales of the area’s past so those living and working in Metropolitan Essex can share in its fascinating story, be proud of its history, and access and enjoy its treasures.
