King’s Lynn Social History Museum
True’s Yard is virtually all that remains of King’s Lynn’s old fishing community, the North End.
Years gone by, hundreds of families lived within a stone’s throw of the beautiful medieval chapel of St. Nicholas. The North End in King’s Lynn had its own boat builders, chandlers, sail-makers, pubs, bake-houses and also a school. The hard and sometimes dangerous life the fisherfolk led, bred a fierce loyalty in the Northenders – they supported each other in times of crisis and strife, they rarely married anyone from outside the North End and cared for their widows and orphans when needed. The menfolk would sail up to 100 miles away from base to bring in their catch and their women would tend the children, wait, pray and mend the nets when they came home.
The fishing fleet still sails from King’s Lynn, but the old way of life has gone. The True’s Yard Museum is a social museum that gives an insight of life gone by years ago and how people lived on a daily basis. The True’s Yard Fisherfolk Museum is a great informative family attraction in Norfolk and can be a great family fun day out learning about the past.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
