Old Lifeboat Station, Alnmouth


There are two old Lifeboat Station buildings by the beach at the east of Alnmouth. One lifeboat was provided by the Duke of Northumberland in the 1850's. The second was provided a little later by the Pease family, whose summer residence was Nether Grange in Alnmouth, specifically for the protection and rescue of bathers. Alnmouth Community Rowing now house their skiffs there; 'Pride of Aln' (launched 2015) and 'Enflaeda' (launched 2019). The Old Lifeboat Station buildings are Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
