  View of the Lifeboat Museum, Harwich, Essex, England   The Lifeboat Musem, Harwich.

The very large bright red buoy advertises the position of the Lifeboat Museum. The museum is housed in the disused Victorian lifeboat house and contains a 37ft Oakley class lifeboat which you can go on board. There is a full history of lifeboats in Harwich from 1876 to the present day.

Another view of Church Street showing part of the church tower on the right. The church is recent, having been built in 1822, although there has been a church on that same site since 1177.
