• Cromer RNLI

Cromer Lifeboat is spending some time away from its hometown - undergoing routine repairs.

The crew from RNLI Cromer have undertaken the first part of the journey and bought back a relief lifeboat.

The relief lifeboat number 16-01, which means it was the first in the Tamar class, is named "RNLB Peter & Lesley-Jane Nicholson". It can be seen in our home station boathouse at the end of the pier.

The Tamar class Lester, which is now 11 years old, is undergoing its maintenance at Poole but at present it is in Lowestoft. Cromer RNLI Operations Manager, Richard Leeds, said: "The boat left us this week and we will let everybody know when it is due back".

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.
