Sheringham museum’s lifeboat included on national register
A Sheringham museum has had another of its lifeboats included in the National Register of Historic Vessels.
The Mo Museum's Manchester Unity of Oddfellows Lifeboat (1961-1990) is the latest lifeboat to be included on the register, joining the museum's other two lifeboats, J.C. Madge (1904 – 1936) and Foresters Centenary (1936 – 1961), which were included on the register in 1999 and 2009.
Tony Sadler, museum director and former Sheringham lifeboatman, said, 'We are thrilled that our outstanding collection of lifeboats has been recognised by the National Register of Historic Vessels.
'The Mo has a unique collection of three restored Sheringham lifeboats standing side by side in the same building. 'Together with the lifeboats we also have a collection of four fishing boats, three of which were built in Sheringham by two of our local boat builders.'
The boats can be viewed by visitors during the museum's opening hours, Tuesday – Saturday and Bank Holiday Mondays 10am – 4.30pm and Sunday 12 noon – 4pm.
