Sunderland Volunteer Life Brigade Museum

The Roker Watch House is not only the headquarters of the Brigade as it also holds a wealth of information on its work and the rescues it has carried out over the past 130 years.

Address: Sunderland Volunteer Life Brigade, The Watch House, Pier View, Sunderland, SR6 0PR
Telephone number: 0191 567 2579

The Roker Watch House is not only the headquarters of the Brigade as it also holds a wealth of information on its work and the rescues it has carried out over the past 130 years.

As well as the many photographs on display, there are artifacts from some of the ships wrecked off the coast and a variety of examples of rescue equipment used by the Brigade. At present, the Watch House is closed to the public but we intend to open at least one day of each week during the Summer months.

Entry is free and light refreshments can be purchased for a small charge. It is a very interesting visit for anyone interested in local or maritime history.
