Angle Lifeboat Station (near Angle, Pembrokeshire, Wales) first opened in 1868〔(【引用サイトリンク】url=http://rnli.org/findmynearest/station/Pages/Angle-Lifeboat-Station.aspx )〕 after a letter from the local Coastguard requested a lifeboat station within the Milford Haven.
The station was originally called ''Milford Lifeboat Station'' until 1892 when it was officially changed after an RNLI Committee of Management meeting.〔(Angle Station History )〕
The station currently operates a lifeboat ''Mark Mason'' and a lifeboat ''Richard John Talbot Hillier''.
The station was established by the RNLI in 1868, although three silver medals had already been awarded for rescues. A boat house and wooden slipway were built, the latter replaced by a stronger slipway in 1888. A new boathouse and roller slipway were built in 1927 and two years later the station took delivery of its first motor-lifeboat.
In 1991 construction began of a new, larger, boathouse and slipway adjacent to the 1927 structure. Following completion in 1992, the old boathouse and slipway were demolished.
In the 1990s an inshore lifeboat station was established and in 1996 a D-class lifeboat, D-493 ''Isabella Mary'' began service at the station. The 1992 all-weather lifeboat station was able to be adapted for the new, larger, Tamar class lifeboat and in 2009 the station took delivery of the Tamar-class, 16-11 ''Mark Mason''.
