Amble Lifeboat Station

Operating from a busy fishing port on the beautiful Northumberland coast, Amble’s Shannon and D class lifeboats respond to a wide variety of incidents. Amble lifeboat crew have been presented with 18 awards for gallantry, including the first ever medals to be awarded for a rescue in an inshore lifeboat.
