The Penlee Lifeboat Disaster Memorial Garden

Photographs  John H. Luxton 2008

The Penlee Lifeboat Disaster Memorial Garden at the former Penlee Lifeboat Station, Mousehole, Cornwall, photographed in March 2008. The garden was constructed to commemorate the loss of RNLB SOLOMON BROWNE lost with all hands on December 19, 1981 when she went to the aid of the stricken Union Transport coaster UNION STAR which was also lost with all hands as well as the captain's family. The current Penlee lifeboat is stationed afloat at Newlyn Harbour, but the original station and garden is maintained as a memorial.
