Lifeboat rescue services in Lydd-on-Sea

RNLI rescue vessels

‘For those in peril on the sea’. We’ve all sung it, and seen the lifeboat stations all around our coast. Did you know that the first lifeboat station in Britain was established at Formby beach in 1776? Or that the first specialised lifeboat was tested on the River Tyne in 1790? Our lifeboats are manned by volunteers to launch quickly and reach a ship or individual in trouble at sea.
