208 years ago Hoylake Lifeboat disaster
Cheshire Life: December 2018
Hoylake has one of the oldest lifeboat stations in the UK, set up in 1803. It was just seven years later, on December 22 1810, that the lifeboat was called to help a vessel called Traveller which had gone aground in the Mersey estuary in a storm.
The lifeboat was overwhelmed by a huge wave and eight of the crew died. A statue in their memory was unveiled outside the lifeboat station in Hoylake on the 200th anniversary of the disaster in 2010.
