The Humber lifeboat station is unique. It is manned by a full-time paid crew who live, with their wives and families, on the isolated Spurn peninsula in Yorkshire, ready to put out immediately to help seafarers in distress. In 2010 Humber lifeboat celebrated 200 years of service. Founded in 1810 by Trinity House of Kingston-upon-Hull, the station was taken over by the RNLI in 1911, and has since become one of the most famous in the British Isles. Some of the most daring, courageous and famous rescues in the history of the lifeboat service have been carried out by the Humber lifeboat and its brave crews, and two gold medals have been awarded by the RNLI to Humber Coxswains. This new history of the station covers the two centuries of life-saving at Spurn Point, with details of the lifeboats, all of the dramatic rescues, and the crews, whose life on this isolated peninsula has shaped the station's operation.
