Southwold Maritime History

In the museum there are extensive displays of local maritime history produced by our man-on-the-spot, curator Frank Upcraft graphically showing all aspects of the lives of the fishermen of Southwold over the centuries. The collection is so extensive that we could not possibly do it justice here, but a few photograpghs of the displays should give a good idea of what treats are in store for visitors to the museum.
