83-year-old wooden vessel brings Norfolk’s fishing heritage to life

An 83-year-old wooden fishing vessel was one of the highlights of a heritage regatta along the north Norfolk coast at the weekend. The event was organised by the charitable trust Rescue Wooden Boats and saw 16 boats displayed at Tugboat Yard on the east quay at Wells. Miss Judith was the oldest to feature. It was built by Johnny Johnston in 1936. Wendy Pritchard brought her boat Welcome Messenger to the event. She said: “It was built in 1963 by Billy May for Bennett Middleton – a Sheringham fisherman and his son Fuzz Middleton, also a Sheringham fisherman.” Nice photo’s! >click to read< 14:15
