Cullercoats Lifeboat Station


The first lifeboat in Cullercoats was funded by the Duke of Northumberland. This became operational in 1852 following the establishment of The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) charity in 1824. In 1896 the current boathouse was built, funded by the Co-operative Wholesale Society and designed by architects Oliver & Leeson of Newcastle.The building is Grade II listed. The lifeboat at Cullercoats has launched more than 720 times and saved well over 840 lives.
