The ‘Alfred Corry’ was the Southwold No 1 Lifeboat dedicated on Easter Monday 3rd April 1893, and was of the Norfolk and Suffolk type, a sailing and pulling boat some 44 feet in length. She is currently being restored and this can be seen first hand in the Museum.
The Museum building is the 1923 ex-Cromer Lifeboat shed. This grand building was brought by sea to Southwold and restored during 1998-9. It is now one of the few remaining examples of its type.
Our permanent exhibition charts the history of the ‘Alfred Corry’, Lifeboat shed, and Maritime history at Southwold.
