Barrow Lifeboat station (located at Roa Island) is the busiest of the 4 RNLI stations in Cumbria. It is built on concrete stilts because the tides can be very high on this coast.
Someone has named this boat Petal – I wonder if that was her name when she was seaworthy? Abandoned, and resembling the carcass of a dead whale, she now provides a sad but fascinating composition for passing photographers. The location is the beach at the side of the Roa Island causeway – approaching Roa village.
John is also a local taxi driver, and he’s the man to see if you have an enamel bath requiring restoration!
Royal Mail red looks so vibrant in the afternoon sun. The beacon looks like a pencil in the sand from this viewpoint.
