Boat conservation project.


Fishing Boats: Maritime Discovery

The three boats in our courtyard have recently undergone some vital conservation work and you can now view them in their restored condition as never before. We will be lifting the covers on our shrimper – the Coronation YH671 for visitors to take a peek inside the vessel that once worked off the shore of Great Yarmouth collecting up to 40 gallons of shrimp on a good day’s catch. Our 2 beach skiffs will also be on show in their newly restored condition for visitor to learn more about the stories of ‘Grace’ and ‘Shipmates’ and their days at sea as herring fishing boats.

Shopping: 1940’s Style

Not any old shop. Visit our historic row and step inside our recreated 1940’s store to experience life during the days of rationing. No self-service checkouts or scanners but the shelves are lined with delights and products from the past as we transport you back to how shopping used to be 70 years ago.
