The lifeboat house and shop were built in 1994 and is unusual in the fact that it is also shared with the Coastguard, but the two parts are completely separate. It now houses our D Class Atlantic 75 inshore lifeboat Eve Pank. This boat was mainly funded by a legacy from Mrs Eve Pank together with contributions from local firms and people.
The building contains a changing room, shower, stores, workshop, toilets and souvenir shop. Upstairs consists of a large crew room, where meetings and lectures can take place, and a small kitchen area. There is an office area with telephone, fax, computer and radio communication equipment to enable people in the boathouse to be in touch with the crew when at sea.
