JUST WHAT IS THAT BIG STONE ?
With the new Boardwalk in place many more people are visiting
the big stone on the warren, so what is it?
The granite stone is a monument to the men of the Cloughey
Lifeboat who risked their lives to save those in peril on the sea.
The monolith was erected in 2001 to mark the 175th Aniversary
of the foundation of the RNLI. It shows from the bottom the
passage of time from the Lifeboat having to be rowed out to sea
to the modern time when motorized Lifeboats replaced the older
rowed craft. The Lifeboat station in Cloughey was closed but during 80 years of service the Lifeboat was called out on one
hundred and fifty two rescue missions on which a total of
three hundred and eleven lives were saved. Our history of
Cloughey web page goes into some detail of the work of the Lifeboat.
