The Old Lizard Lifeboat Station, Cornwall by 


The old lifeboat station at the Lizard point served the area well from 1914 till it’s closure in the early sixties, the current one is just a short way round the coast.

The Lizard Point is the most Southerly point on the UK mainland and is notorious for treacherous seas, with many outcrops of jagged rocks, many ships have been wrecked at this point during a storm.

Quite a contrast when we see it on such a calm and beautiful Summer’s day like I enjoyed on my recent holiday in Cornwall.

    BEAUTIFULLY CAPTURED AND THANK YOU FOR THE GEOGRAPHY LESSON.I HAD THOUGHT THAT LANDS END WAS THE MOST SOUTHERLY PART OF BRITAIN…..I WAS WRONG!NOW IL HAVE TO GO BACK AND SEE IT AGAIN….. :)

  • Thank-you very much Diane, Lands End is the most Westerly point of the UK mainland, the Lizard Peninsula is about 20 miles East of it but around 15 miles more Southerly at the Point, geography lesson over, LOL.,
    Regards, Rod.
