History
1870s, enlarged 1886, lifeboat house for Saint David's lifeboat. The first Saint David's lifeboat, the Augusta, given 1869 was kept here until replaced by a larger boat, the Gem, in 1885, for which the building was enlarged. The building became disused in 1911 when the replacement of the Gem by a motor lifeboat necessitated a new building.
