The 150-year history of Shoreham RNLI Lifeboat Station
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has just published a new book on Shoreham Lifeboat Station, which celebrated its 150th Anniversary in 2015.
Written by John Periam and Michelle Tugwell, with the support of past and present crew members; this new publication gives an exciting, and at times nostalgic history about the station’s last 150 years.
From the early days of the horse drawn carriage lifeboats to the current state of the art Tamar lifeboat situated in its purpose built boathouse at Shoreham, you can read about the crews’ exploits both at sea and behind the scenes.
It also covers royal visits, fund-raising, family histories, the history of the different lifeboats station and the many life saving services over the years.
Stunning images grace all the pages, many which have been enhanced from archive files, to current ones taken by Geoffrey Lee and other local photographers.
Our book is available for £8.95 from the Shoreham Lifeboat Station souvenir shop, which is open Monday to Friday 10am to 2pm and weekends 10am to 4pm.
Orders can be made online and posted for an additional postage and packing fee of £2.00. Fill in your details below to order and a member of our shop team will get back to you shortly.
