R.M.S TITANIC, the beautiful ocean liner that sunk on her maiden voyage on 15th April 1912. She sailed from Southampton Docks on 10th April 1912 and was on her way to New York City when she struck an iceberg and sank in the Atlantic Ocean. This disaster had a devastating impact on the local area and the world. Using the example of Titanic, this theme will try to show the importance of ocean liners to Hampshire.
We take you on a tour of the parish of Headley by means of three journeys -the first around the centre of Headley and Arford, the second to Headley Down and beyond, and the third along the River Wey and its tributaries. In doing so, we venture occasionally outside today's civil parish boundaries-but that too is all part of the history of Headley. Further information on the history of Headley may be found at www.headley-village.com/history/
