About

The museum is the home of the Henry Ramey Upcher, Sheringham’s last private lifeboat built in 1894 and in service until 1935, still housed in the original boat shed from where she was launched. The museum is dedicated to the history of the lifeboats financed by the Upcher family of Sheringham Hall to be manned by the fishermen of what was originally Lower Sheringham and includes a wealth of information on the earlier Augusta lifeboat 1838-1894. Exhibits tell stories of Sheringham’s fishing and boat building families of those times.

Admission is free, but voluntary contributions are invited to cover the upkeep of the lifeboat and building.
