Photowalk to explore riverside heritage

By Ray Duffill

A photowalk from Hedon to the village of Paull will take place next week on Wednesday, May 22, leaving from outside the Haven Arms in Havenside at just after 7pm.

The route will take photographers along the Humber Bank allowing them to see (on the opposite bank) the wreck of an old wooden Paull shrimper boat.

There are great views during the walk, of the countryside on one side, and the industrial landscape of Saltend chemicals park and jetties on the other.

The walk will take around 40 minutes to complete.

On arriving at Paull the group hopes to meet with the non-walkers and enjoy the village scenery until sunset around 9.10pm.

For those who do not or cannot walk, organisers from Hedon Viewfinders hope to car-share a
trip to Paull and the surrounding countryside for photo opportunities and meet up with the walkers for sunset photography later.

The photowalk is the first in a series of activities by Hedon Viewfinders focusing on the village of Paull and its maritime heritage.

The walk is free and open to anyone with a camera or phone to attend.

A zoom lens is useful to get larger photos of the boat wreck.

Photographers taking part can find out about the Hedon Viewfinders Paull maritime project funded by Hull Maritime Community Grants.

The photowalk is weather-dependent. If conditions are too wet, alternative photography activities will happen indoors at the Haven Arms.
