Historic Pictures Around Cromer

From fishermen to kings, to bathing belles and postcards, Cromer Artspace and Cromer Museum are showing a selection from the museum image archive around town in 2024, thanks to funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Cromer Artspace and Cromer Museum are working with 6 Cromer based community groups to produce 12 Heritage Spaces around the walls of Cromer, each featuring images from the museum‘s archives.

    About The National Lottery Heritage Fund

    As the largest dedicated funder of the UK’s heritage, The National Lottery Heritage Fund’s vision is for heritage to be valued, cared for and sustained for everyone, now and in the future as set out in our strategic plan, Heritage 2033.

    Over the next ten years, we aim to invest £3.6billion raised for good causes by National Lottery players to bring about benefits for people, places and the natural environment. We help protect, transform and share the things from the past that people care about, from popular museums and historic places, our natural environment and fragile species, to the languages and cultural traditions that celebrate who we are.

    We are passionate about heritage and committed to driving innovation and collaboration to make a positive difference to people’s lives today, while leaving a lasting legacy for future generations to enjoy.
