The Royal National Lifeboat Institution was established in 1824 and has a long and proud tradition of saving life at sea. Today, the volunteer lifeboat crews on the coasts of Northumberland, County Durham, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire operate high-tech state-of-the-art lifeboats for the purpose of saving lives at sea.
The RNLI currently operates sixteen lifeboat stations along the north-east coast of England. This comprehensive book has details of every one, and covers their histories and the current operations.
It also includes details of old stations that have been closed, photographs of lifeboat memorials, and contains descriptions of some of the dramatic, courageous and daring rescues undertaken by the lifeboat crews from the region.
Author Nicholas Leach has amassed a wealth of information about the lifeboats and lifeboat stations of the North East, past and present, visiting every one to provide a complete and up-to-date record of lifesaving in the treacherous North Sea between Berwick-upon-Tweed in the north and Skegness.

Harwich Lifeboat station is one of the busiest in Britain and is just one of the 230 RNLI stations based about Britain's coast. It is situated at the mouth of the River Stour & Orwell and opposite is Felixstowe the largest commercial port in the UK.
Harwich has a lifeboat history dating from 1876 and has been home to the first steam lifeboat "Duke of Northumberland" in 1890 and in 1996 the first Severn class lifeboat to be stationed in England was at Harwich.
Today there are two lifeboats stationed at Harwich - the off-shore Severn class lifeboat Albert Brown and the inshore Atlantic 75 lifeboat Sure and Steadfast.
2002 saw the completion of a new boathouse that provides crew training facilities, houses the inshore lifeboat, public viewing area and souvenir shop. The two lifeboats cover area from Walton-on-the-Naze to Aldeburgh and 50 miles off-shore; this includes the various different rivers such as the Deben, Ore and Walton-back-waters.
Illustrated with over 150 black & white and colour images, the book tells the story of this lifeboat station, as well as the daring rescues the many crews have undertaken.
