THE CROMER LIFEBOAT SHED
The story of the Shed is really quite extraordinary. Having been in service on Cromer pier for 75 years, it was condemmed in 1997. However, it was saved from disposal by the Contractor and taken to Lowestoft. A chance series of events saw it saved, transported and placed in Southwold as the permanent home for the ALFRED CORRY.
