Padstow set for new lifeboat house

Poynton Bradbury Wynter Cole is set to start on site with this design for a new Padstow Lifeboat House in Cornwall.

The £5.5 million boathouse and slipway will replace the 1960s boathouse at Mother Ivey's Bay on Trevose Head, Cornwall, and will accommodate a new lifeboat.

The lifeboat will be mounted horizontally on a tipping cradle, which will pivot to align with the slipway for launching and recovery.

Access is to be provided for visiting wheelchair users via cable hoist from the cliff top and a footbridge to the upper deck in the boathouse.
