RNLI Cromer.

Cromar 029

The Cromer Lifeboat Station at the end of the pier

Cromer Lifeboat of the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institute) is one of the busiest on the Norfolk coastline and is still manned by members of the same families that have been manning the lifeboat for over a hundred years. Henry Blogg was the most famous and highly decorated skipper of the Cromer lifeboat and his name lives on at the Lifeboat museum.

The main lifeboat is housed on the end of the pier where it is launched directly into the sea. There is also a small runabout launched by tractor and trailer housed in the No 2 lifeboat shed next to the Henry Blogg Museum on the edge of the beach.
