Walton’s second RNLI lifeboat (1900-28) is now berthed at Titchmarsh Marina, access off Kirby Road.

This early example of a sailing/rowing lifeboat converted to motor power was renovated and brought back into operation by volunteers of the Frinton & Walton Heritage Trust.

Trips on the lifeboat can be booked via the website:

Walton Maritime Museum is open from 2-4pm for the 28-30 May public holiday and everyday from 1 June-30 September in 2016.

The Museum is located on East Terrace next to the Maritime Coastal Agency.

Over the winter we have given the Museum a new look and feedback has confirmed there is plenty to interest all ages.

The Walton Maritime Museum records Walton’s close association with the sea, its impact on the town’s social history and the local lifeboat’s contribution. Fossil and flint collections display Walton’s internationally important geology.

The special exhibition highlights the local community’s war involvement, the effort and restraints on local life during WW1 and WW2.
