Plan of the town of Harwich in Essex. This plan was drawn by a Dutch artist, possibly Sir Bernard de Gomme, in about 1690. The land on which Harwich stands was created in the 11th century when the Gulf Stream altered its course and the Rivers Orwell and Stour changed their paths. The town at Harwich was granted a Royal Charter by Edward II in 1318. Harwich developed around the busy and thriving port.
