Trinity House: 500 years of protecting sailors

Very true, David.

Albox, Costa Almeria, Spain

And not to forget the air ambulance either, each mission costs a minimum of around £2,500. These charities wouldn’t survive without the generosity of the public.

Services we all hope we will never have to take advantage of, but it’s comforting to know they are there should we ever need them….


Thanks for posting this Steve. I have to admit I didn’t know that something so important to safety at sea was a charity. Why is it that things that are so important to life like Trinity House and the RNLI are charities? Have we got our priority’s wrong? Certainly seems so.


Every day vessels are safely guided around the coast by a charity set up during the reign of Henry VIII. Trinity House is celebrating its 500th anniversary but will there be a role for it to play in the future?
