Events and Attractions in Norfolk
Norfolk Attractions and Events - Cromer Lifeboat Station: The Cromer lifeboat station was established in 1804 and was the first such station in Norfolk, and much needed due to the extreme weather conditions experienced along this coast. In the 19th Century there were very many rowing boats stationed along the coast. In 1920, a fixed station was built near the piers and a motor boat came into service. Through a series of famous rescues 1917-1941 Cromer and its lifeboast became known nationwide. Today, the lifeboat is used an average of once a month, not least because the nearest ports ( Great Yarmouth 40 miles, Wells 25 miles) are so far away from Cromer, that their boats could not intervene in time.
