  • The Lizard lifeboat station is launched from the boathouse down the slipway into the sea. The station features a funicular line to transport lifeboat crews from the boathouse to the clifftop station car park.

    The lifeboat station was opened here in 1961, the location was chosen because it was sufficiently protected to allow safe launching in all conditions. The old lifeboat station around the Lizard headland at Polpeor Cove was too exposed, making launching difficult and dangerous in certain conditions.
