The last of 14 maps to help visitors in Harwich and Dovercourt has been installed.

The posters have been put up around the towns so people arriving by train, cruise ship, DFDS Seaways or Stenaline can quickly find their bearings.

The final poster went up in the window of the Original Factory Shop in Kingsway and is an enlarged version of the one featured in the leaflet Discover Dovercourt Town Centre and Historic Harwich.

Mick Page, Tendring District Council leader, said it was a joint effort between the council and Harwich Town Council.

“We all want to be able to make the very most of the opportunities from the large numbers of people arriving via Harwich Port and we know this leaflet has already proved its worth,” he said.

“We believe these posters will be a real benefit to any visitor coming into the town.”

Rob Maginnis, store manager at The Original Factory Shop, said: “The map will encourage cruise passengers to shop locally and keep Dovercourt town centre alive throughout the season.”
