TA3911 : Humber Lifeboat, Spurn Point

taken 11 years ago, near to Humber Pilot Station [other Features], East Riding of Yorkshire, Great Britain

Humber Lifeboat, Spurn Point
Humber Lifeboat, Spurn Point
The only lifeboat station in the UK with a full-time crew, seen here at low tide in early January. The first Spurn Lifeboat was established in 1810 by Hull Trinity House. Due to its remote location there have been specially built houses at Spurn for the crews and their families from 1819 to the present day. Crew members often cycle down the raised gangway from their homes to the lifeboat moorings in order to save a few precious seconds.
