This grade II listed lifeboat house in Tenby, Wales was almost beyond repair until it was purchased by Tim and Philomena O’Donovan in 2010.
The restoration project took 2 years and was completed by architect Michael Argent. The listed status of the building meant that it had to be restored with similar like-for-like cladding, which is why it still resembles its former glory as the busiest lifeboat house in Wales.
First built in 1962 by the RNLI and the Pembrokeshire County Council, structure was a proud part of Tenby’s heritage and one the locals weren’t going to let go to waste.
The restoration of this build can also be seen on @channel4
