Exciting news for the residents of Saltburn and Redcar… Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne will visit The Zetland Lifeboat Museum on Friday, 19th July to celebrate the return of the world’s oldest lifeboat following improvements.
The Zetland is the oldest surviving lifeboat worldwide and is listed within the National Historic Ship Register as part of the Nations Historic Fleet, and was built in 1802 by Henry Greathead at his South Shields boatyard.
Zetland gave spectacular work ensuring the safety of the Redcar Fishermen, pilots and other seafarers and is being conserved, not just for the town, but as a significant and historically important vessel, recognised the world over.
Breathtaking! Lets give Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne a warm and friendly welcome to our community…
