The Lizard Lifeboat Station has been named amongst the top 200 most "influential people and projects" showing how civil engineering has shaped the world.

The list has been drawn up by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) to mark its 200th anniversary and support the government's Year of Engineering.

The association describes the lifeboat station at Kilcobben Cove as "one of the most important lifeboat stations in the country," due to its position less than a mile from the UK's most southerly point, on one of the country's "most remote and treacherous coastlines."

Richard Fish, chair of ICE South West, said: “The RNLI does a wonderful job in keeping our waters safe and their most southerly lifeboat station at the Lizard Point is a vital part of this. Yet this station is much more than a shed and a slipway, its reconstruction in 2011 was a major civil engineering project and a logistical challenge, as well as a modern building in a spectacular setting."

Also chosen from Cornwall to make the list was the Eden Project.
