8/4 Lifeboat Station


Pair of lifeboat houses, mid-C19. Snecked rubble with cut sandstone quoins
and dressings. Southern has Lakeland slate roof patched with Welsh slate,
northern has Welsh slate roof. The southern lifeboat house is longer and has
an outshut on the north. Each has boarded double doors at each end under a
timber lintel with a small window above, and gables with plain bargeboards;
northern has moulded finials and pendants. Each has 3 chamfered windows in
each side wall; southern has blocked doorway with inserted window at west end
of outshut and chamfered window at east end. All openings in alternating-
block surrounds.

Included for local historical interest. 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 the village,
specifically for the protection and rescue of bathers.
