Shipwreck! For Those in Peril
The East Coast has always been one of the most dangerous for shipping in the whole of the British Isles.
The large number of shipwrecks around the coastline of Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex, and the subsequent loss of lives, remind us that for as long as we have lived close to the coast mankind has fallen victim to the great natural forces of the sea.
Historically the people of the East Coast have responded to the physical challenges of the sea in different ways. Some have cooperated to
come to the aid of their fellow men, risking their lives serving in lifeboats. Others gave their support through humanitarian efforts. This year
sees a number of anniversaries connected with local lifesaving. Artists have depicted the fury of the sea and the bravery of those at its mercy. Many survivors have been deeply
affected by their ordeals. And, long after the drama, those left behind have endeavoured to come to terms with their loss.
This exhibition tells the personal stories of the people who have lived, worked, died and survived on the East Coast.
