Launch Information - 29/06/2019


Cromer RNLI was requested to launch its inshore lifeboat at 20:22 on 29 June 2019, to reports of an object in the water.


A telephone caller had reported seeing an object in the water near Trimingham. The inshore lifeboat ‘George and Muriel’ was quickly launched and a search began.

Tidal movements meant the search area initially was between Overstrand and Trimingham.


However once on the scene at Trimingham, it was established that the object was in fact a piece of wooden debris, it was picked up and returned to shore.


The inshore lifeboat was rehoused by 21.20

In Cromer there are two boathouses, one for the All-Weather Lifeboat "Lester" on the pier and the other for the Inshore Lifeboat on the east promenade. This boathouse was originally built in 1902 for the then rowing and sailing lifeboat Louisa Heartwell. Also on the east promenade you'll find the Henry Blogg Lifeboat Museum. The whole town is proud of the man referred to as 'the greatest of the lifeboatmen', who gained national fame in the first half of the 20th century when navigation around the Norfolk coastline was particularly hazardous in easterly gales.
