Lifeboat Station

An artist’s impression of the ceremonial launching of Clacton’s first lifeboat in July 1878. The occasion attracted thousands of spectators, and was long remembered afterwards. There were frequent wrecks on the offshore sands and the coastguards had previously maintained a rescue boat. This new vessel was a gift of the Freemasons to the RNLI and was named Albert Edward after their Grand Master, the Prince of Wales.
