About Rescue Wooden Boats

"We are passionate about conserving maritime heritage. We restore examples of working wooden boats, tell their stories - and those of the last generation of seafaring communities to use them - through film and photos, show the crafts and skills used, and actively involve people - especially young people - in learning about all this.

Find out more on our website, visit our Maritime Heritage Centre in Norfolk, NR23 1QF, and get involved with what we do!"
