Flamborough Head Lifeboats

Following the famous 10th February gales in 1871 the RNLI set up two lifeboat stations at Flamborough, one on each landing.

A succession of lifeboats at these two stations saved hundreds of lives but in 1938 the South Landing Station was closed following the introduction of a motorised lifeboat four years earlier. Flamborough is rightly proud of its seafaring heritage and of its lifeboats whose history is well documented in local bookshops.
