Hoylake Lifeboat Station

Founded in 1803, Hoylake Lifeboat Station is one of the oldest RNLI stations in the UK. The community in Hoylake have provided volunteer crews for over 200 years, a tradition that continues today with generations of local people prepared to risk their lives to save others at sea.

The lifeboat at Hoylake, the Shannon class 13-06 RNLB 'Edmund Hawthorn Micklewood', covers the approaches to Liverpool, the Dee Estuary and the Irish Sea and launches at all states of tide in any weather to people and vessels in distress.

After a 2-year appeal, a new boathouse was built on Hoylake promenade which opened in November 2008. The station's Shannon class lifeboat became operational on 9th December 2014. 

NEXT EXERCISE: Tuesday 20th February, 18:00
