The Henry Blogg Museum is named after the most decorated lifeboatman in RNLI history, who served on Cromer’s lifeboats for 53 years. He was a local man, who did good and became one of the most famous in the RNLI’s history.
In 1917, the first of Henry’s medal-winning rescues took place during a terrible storm. Despite the adverse weather, his crew launched 4 times in 14 hours.
Henry remained as coxswain until he was 74 years old – 10 years beyond statutory retirement age.
It is a family friendly museum that tells the story of Henry Blogg and the other courageous people who saved lives at sea in Cromer. The museum aims to teach why and how the incredible volunteers have won 64 medals for their amazing efforts through the past 200 years.
