Rescue Wooden Boats

Wells-next-the-Sea

Four enthusiasts, boatbuilders David Hewitt and George Hewitt and wooden working boat owners Graeme Peart and Wendy Pritchard, based in North Norfolk, decided in 2010 to set up a charitable trust. Its purpose is to acquire, restore, maintain and use examples of heritage maritime wooden working craft and in so doing, tell their stories through the people who crewed them and provide education about their history, construction, maintenance and use as well as about the crafts involved in all of these.
A proud history
Rescue Wooden Boats has been given the Lifeboat Lucy Lavers, a Liverpool single screw class, built in 1940, donated by the Dunkirk Little Ships Restoration Trust and Black Beauty, a North Norfolk crab boat donated by Andy Frary, both needing restoration. Lucy Lavers' first service was the Dunkirk Evacuation, after which she was based at Aldeburgh, Suffolk. She then acted as a relief lifeboat on the Norfolk coast, so also served in Wells-next-the-Sea, Sheringham and Cromer. Based in Stiffkey, they have limited opening hours, but it is a fascinating place with lots to see and read.
