Workington, Whitehaven, Maryport and Seascale Lifeboats
An Illustrated History
The Workington lifeboat station in Cumbria has a fine record of gallantry. The volunteer lifeboat crews have undertaken hundreds of rescues, and continue the tradition of saving lives at sea in the Solway Firth begun by the Whitehaven lifeboat station, which dates from 1803, and by the lifeboat crews at Maryport and Seascale.
This book covers the history of all four stations, all the notable rescues, the many lifeboats that have served this coast and includes the new state-of-the-art 13m Shannon lifeboat, which came to the station in 2017.
