Solent Rescue were established in 1971 initially as a beach rescue unit operated by auxiliary coastguards.
Solent Rescue has since then developed into a fully operational independent lifeboat station, which operates under the direct control of HM Coastguard and is responsible for approximately 33 square miles of the central and western Solent.
Lepe Country Park
Lepe Country Park is based on the North Western Coast of the Solent Waterway and runs from Stanswood Bay to the mouth of the Beaulieu River.
Lepe was once one of the main ports in the Solent but was wiped out of existence by a great storm in the seventeenth century resulting in the untimely demise of the related fishing community.
