Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade

The Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade is a voluntary shore-based coastal rescue service founded in 1864.

Operating from the Watch House Museum in Tynemouth they work closely with all the emergency services including the local RNLI. In recent years the Brigade has averaged over 120 callouts a year and these range from monitoring and gathering information on broken down boats to recovering cliff casualties from our coastline.

The Watch House Museum displays artefacts, pictures and relics from old shipwrecks chronicling the history of lifesaving on our coastline since 1864.
