    The photograph shows the Charles Cooper Henderson - this lifeboat was at this station from 1933 to 1957, all that is left of the old station is the road out to it and the old belt house, where the lifejackets and gear was kept. The slipway was removed when the Mabel E Holland left in 1979 the boathouse had been removed a few years before.
