The first Sea Cadet unit was established in 1854 at Whitstable in Kent, created by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme. Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the Unit Headquarters.

The tradition of community - based Sea Cadet Units continues today with 400 across the UK each with charitable status enabling them to raise funds to meet their running costs. All Units are members of the Sea Cadet Corps and are governed by the national charity MSSC - the Marine Society & Sea Cadets.

We work partnership with the Royal Navy under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and receive corporate support from commercial shipping companies and the Maritime sector. Our core purpose is to celebrate Britain's maritime heritage and contribute to its future development by supporting young people as Sea Cadets.

Welcome to Buxton Sea Cadets

Our website is intended to give you basic information about Buxton Sea Cadets ( TS Bulwark ) and the Sea cadet Corps. Every Sea Cadet unit is named after a naval ship. We are called TS Bulwark, after the aircraft carrier HMS Bulwark.

TS Bulwark is a registered charity (No 520426) with a little help from the Ministry of Defence. We are almost entirely self-supported by fundraising and donations.
