Mablethorpe is a small seaside town in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. The population of the town (including Sutton) was 12,531 at the 2011 census.HistoryMablethorpe HallMablethorpe as a town has existed for many centuries, although part of it was lost to the sea in the 1540s. For example, records of the Fitzwilliam family of Mablethorpe Hall date back to the 14th century. In the 19th century, it was also a centre for ship breaking during the winter. Mablethorpe Hall is to the west of the town along Alford Road. It is near the parish church of St Mary (the Mablethorpe church group also includes Trusthorpe).Town lifeboatsIn 1883 the first lifeboat station was built in Mablethorpe. The station ran until the First World War when it temporarily closed because of crew shortages. After the war, the station was closed permanently due to a continuing shortage of crew. The station remained closed until 1965 when an inshore lifeboat (ILB) station was established.The town now has a new lifeboat station.A new D class lifeboat, D-506 Patrick Rex Moren, was placed on service on 9 July 1996.In 1998, a bronze medal was awarded to the Helmsman for a service on 12 April, when the D class lifeboat rescued the crew of two and saved the fishing vessel Lark. The fishing vessel had broken down in the surf and was drifting helplessly towards the shore, having lost her anchor.The lifeboat was launched in a force 7 gale and a heavy swell – extreme conditions for this class of lifeboat. The helmsman had considerable difficulty in negotiating the rough seas in order to reach the fishing boat. He decided that it was too hazardous to take off the crew and passed a line and towed her away from danger – a considerable feat in the huge seas for a lifeboat smaller than the fishing boat and powered by one 40 hp outboard engine.
