Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade Watch House

The Brigade Watch House Museum is packed full of fascinating and unique artefacts of the Brigade's history, ranging from the Ship's bell from one of the Shipwrecks that led to the creation of the Brigade in 1864 to a picture of Her Majesty The Queen visiting the Brigade in October 2005. Furthermore behind every picture and relic is a captivating story about how it links into both the Brigade's past and present role as a Voluntary Life Brigade on the North Tyneside Coastline.

The Watch House is manned by Billy, the caretaker, and his wife Kath, who help keep the Museum in pristine condition and are on hand to ensure your visit to the Museum is interesting and informative. Guided tours and talks about the Brigade can be arranged and held at the Museum by either e-mailing the web site or by speaking to Billy.
