About Rescue Wooden Boats

We are passionate about conserving maritime heritage. We restore examples of working wooden boats, tell their stories through film and photos, show the crafts and skills used and actively involve people, especially young people, in learning about all this. 

Come to our Visitor Centre in Stiffkey, Norfolk, NR23 1QF, or look at hundreds of films and photos on our website telling the stories of the last generation of seafaring communities to use wooden boats. Do get involved with what we do.
