The Mumbles Lifeboat Station
The book has many fascinating stories of the history of the boats, volunteer crew and rescues. The fascinating history of The Mumbles Lifeboat Station has been brought to life in a new book written by Kate Jones.
Read about our brave volunteers and their lifeboats, from the past to the present, and how they have battled the elements to bring people to safety.
The 140 page book with 190 photographs is packed with stories, some tragic, some amusing, of the gallantry of the crews of the Mumbles Lifeboats.
