Lifeboat History in Southwold

By Linda Tancs

There’s a museum for everything, even lifeboats. You’ll find one in the English seaside town of Southwold on the northeast Suffolk coast. Known as the Alfred Corry Lifeboat Museum, it showcases the 1893 Southwold No.1 Lifeboat ‘Alfred Corry’, Southwold’s lifeboat from 1893 until 1918. Launched 41 times, she saved 47 lives. Now restored to her former glory, the museum displays not only her story but that of the crew and local maritime history. The museum is located on the grounds of the harbor car park on Ferry Road.
