  • Information

    The Staithes and Runswick lifeboat station has had a open-closed history.

    • Established in 1875.
    • Closed in 1922 due to difficulty in launching the lifeboat and in finding a crew.
    • Re-opened in 1928 as the fishing industry built up again.
    • Closed again in 1938.
    • In January 1978 an Atlantic 21 Class lifeboat was sent to Staithes for evaluation trials. These trials were successful and it was decided to establish an inshore lifeboat station which became operational from 31 March 1978 and the All-Weather lifeboat at Runswick Station was withdrawn on 30 June 1978. The station was renamed Staithes and Runswick on the re-opening of the station in March 1978.
