The Norfolk wherrymen

This collection of archive photos was contributed by Jayne Tracey whose father, James Forsythe, was one of the Founders of the Norfolk Wherry Trust which has kept ‘Albion’ afloat since they rescued her in 1949. ‘Albion’ is the last of the trading wherries, over 120 years old and still sailing. Jayne was born aboard the wherry ‘Bramble’ and spent much of her early life living aboard wherries.
