Bridlington books: History & Heritage
BRIDLINGTON, just south of Flamborough Head, is in a critical position on the ancient and very busy north-south coastal sea route. There was frequent need to save the lives of mariners at the mercy of the ferocious North Sea storms that swept the coast of East Yorkshire and, in 1805, the men of Bridlington Quay established a Lifeboat at the port. This fascinating new book pilots the reader through two centuries of transformation from a wooden rowing boat, launched by horses and manpower, to the fast hi-tech vessel of today. Its well-researched narrative records the men who formed the crews, vividly describing their many acts of courage - indeed heroism, and volunteered to risk their own lives to save the lives of others. Some nineteen years before the R.N.L.I. was founded, the independent Bridlington boat was saving lives from storm and shipwreck. Later, as part of the R.N.L.I., Bridlington provided crews for four Lifeboats at the same time. It is, indeed, one of the oldest Lifeboat stations, anywhere in the world, that has provided a continuous service of saving life. This book will be warmly welcomed far beyond Bridlington ...and the revenue from every copy purchased will directly contribute to the work of the R. N.L.I.
