The Fishermen's Heritage Centre was opened by Peter Cox, Town Mayor on the 13th of April 2006 in Sheringham, and is now a historic museum set in an ancient fishing shed on the seafront.
The Centre demonstrates the history of the lifeboats, for the use of the fishermen. These lifeboats are also referred to as the private, the first of these being called the Upcher. The second The Augusta, and the third the Henry Ramey Upcher. Today the Henry Ramey Upcher can still be seen in its original shed, which forms part of the Heritage Centre.
Step back in time and discover information and photographic records of the fishermen who crewed the life boats, with stories of how they earned there living and their adventures on the dangerous waters.
