Product details The Women

The Women

John Charlton

The Cullercoats lifeboat being hauled from the sea by villagers following a dramatic rescue on New Year's Day 1861. The ship 'Lovely Nellie', had been wrecked in a snowstorm near Whitley Bay. The lifeboat had to be towed three miles along coast to reach the scene, as the storm prevented it being launched at Cullercoats. One version of the event says that the boat had been hauled by women, but a newspaper report at the time records that it was pulled by horses. Villagers often helped launch and haul in lifeboats, to help fellow seafarers in distress.
