Description:

Detailed engraving of one of the life boats made at Cullercoats.

Cullercoats is a village and urban area of North East England. In 1848, a coble taking a pilot to a ship further out at sea capsized with the loss of all on board. In response to this disaster the local landowner, the Duke of Northumberland funded the setting up of an RNLI lifeboat station. The following year a second disaster, this time costing 20 lifeboat crew their lives, prompted the Duke to sponsor a competition to design a self-righting lifeboat. The resulting boat, the Percy was built at the Duke’s expense and delivered to Cullercoats in 1852
