Lifeboat House [NAT]

OS (GIS) AIB, 10 April 2006.

Location formerly entered as NO 5685 0343.

For Old Lifeboat House (NO 56843 03420), see NO50SE 48.15.

The first lifeboat house at Anstruther (NO50SE 48.15) was built in 1865, at the head of the old E pier. The present lifeboat house and launchway were built on the Middle Pier (NO50SE 48.12) in 1904, launching into the Outer (E) Harbour (NO50SE 48.14); this system remains in use. The lifeboat house and launchway were refurbished (and the former extended) in 1991 and 1995.
