Folkestone, 42 North Street, The Lifeboat Pub
Located at 42 North Street on the Durlocks is The Lifeboat, and the building it occupies dates back to 1750. Originally this pub was extremely small, with ceilings only 7 ft. high, however, in 1956 they managed to buy the house on the corner, and used the ground floor of it for extra space. One landlord by the name of Harry May, who was licensee from 1948 to 1980 collected photographs of lifeboats from all over the land, and these can still be seen displayed on the walls. After Mr. May retired, the pub was closed for two years, but happily reopened again in 1982 and still enjoys a good trade.
