Snowdrop Cottage South Denes

A Memory of Great Yarmouth.

This cottage was in fact the prow of a boat which had been cut off and erected, almost like a sentry
box, and stood near the Nelson Monument on South Denes. There was an article in the Yarmouth
Mercury ( 10/11/72 ) which featured this cottage but its accompanying photo was very grainy and I
am curious about its history. That particular photo also had my great grandfather's brother standing
on the threshold as he, in his later years used it as a watchman's hut. He and his brothers were all
local fishermen/beachmen and as part of ancestry research would welcome any photos of this cottage
or the Moss fishermen/lifeboatmen.
