Runswick - The Lifeboat

Runswick - The Lifeboat

In this painting of the lifeboat at Runswick Bay by W. Gibson we can see the new lifeboathouse that was built in 1910, on the beach. 

On October 29th, 1910, a new lifeboat was sent to Runswick.  She was a 35ft self-righter and was named the ’Hester Rothschild’ and served at Runswick until 1933, being involved in 31 services and saving 114 lives.

Thanks to Beryl Morris for the image and ”The Story of The Staithes and Runswick Lifeboats” by Jeff Morris for the information.
