Maritime Heritage East
Maritime Heritage East was a Renaissance funded programme, based at the Time and Tide Museum, Great Yarmouth. The project ran until December 2010 but the partnerships which were created still live on with the proactive museums. The project aimed to raise the profile and appreciation of maritime heritage in the East of England. Through collections and skills survey work and practical dialogue between maritime museums the programme also sought to develop regional and national partnerships. It was the only regional maritime development programme of its kind. Maritime Heritage East worked with over 40 maritime museums in the East of England.
The museum is brilliantly positioned to have links with the coastal communities of Norfolk and Great Yarmouth and it is these communities that MHE worked with on an exciting new project to collect oral history recordings and films of life on the coast.

We found so much of interest at Time & Tide that we ran out of time.
