St Bees RNLI Inshore Lifeboat

The first St Bees Inshore Lifeboat was commisioned in 1970, folowing local fund raising led mainly by the Egremont Rotary Club. From the early days when the crew operated a Class D boat from a boathouse which was a basically a single garage, the station has grown until it now operates an Atlantic 75 boat, The Percy Henry Patmore MBE MM, named after the beneficiary whose legacy funded the purchase of the boat.

The boathouse too has developed and is now a purpose built building which has full facilities for housing and servicing the boat plus comprehensive facilities for the crew.
