This picture shows the Old Lifeboat House public house on the corner of Carnarvon Road and Church Road. Taken from the opposite pavement of Carnarvon Road.

The Lifeboat House, designed by Charles H Cooke, was opened in 1878 to house the lifeboat. A fence originally enclosed the building to protect it from cattle. The Lifeboat House once served (1934 onwards) as a branch of Fitch Motors.

In the background is the Roman Catholic Church of Our Lady of Light and St. Osyth, which was built in 1902-3 and is a Grade II listed building.
