The former Rhosneigr lifeboat station

Rhosneigr Former Lifeboat Station

The RNLI decided to build a lifeboat station at Rhosneigr in 1872 after a series of shipwrecks nearby the coast of this beautiful village.

The lifeboat shed and lifeboat cost £680, which was paid for by Mrs Thomas Lingham who was from London.

To launch and man the lifeboat it would have required a crew of between 10 and 12 men.

In 1872 the lifeboat station at Rhosneigr closed in 1924 and the former lifeboat shed is now privately owned, and is a garage.

Thomas Lingham - Rhosneigr lifeboat

In 2017 it came to light the the former Rhosneigr lifeboat, the Thomas Lingham was lying in a field in France. The lifeboat was decaying badly and if not restored soon it would be gone forever.

A small band of volunteers has got together to form The Holyhead Maritime Heritage Group. The aim of this group will be to work towards helping with Maritime Heritage in Holyhead and on Anglesey.

A crowdfunding page was set up to pay for the recovery and transport of the lifeboat and return it to Anglesey where it could be restored.
