Exploringthe changing character of Harwich, Dovercourt and Parkeston through the courseof the 19th century, included in this book is the economic, social andpolitical history of the borough. The book provides an overview of thedevelopment of areas such as education, religion, public health with a strongfocus on Harwich's maritime history.Theborough of Harwich, including the parish of Dovercourt, lies in the far northeast corner of Essex. Its coastal location as a natural harbour at the mouth ofthe Orwell river dictated that Harwich had a prominent role as a port and navalbase from the 14th century onwards. In the 19th century Harwich retained itsmilitary function, particularly during the Napoleonic and Crimean wars. Theport declined economically as a result of losing the continental packet servicein the 1830s, but it was rejuvenated by the opening of the railway in 1854.Dovercourt grew as a residential area and seaside resort in the second half ofthe 19th century, although the rest of the parish retained much of itstraditional agricultural character. The opening of the port at nearby Parkestonin 1883 led to a rapid growth in both passenger traffic and trade to and fromthe continent.
