Following the decision to place a motor lifeboat (ON676 RNLB Langham) at Bembridge, a concrete pier some 250 yards in length from the shore to the outer ridge of rocks had to be constructed with a boathouse on piles at the seaward end with a launching slipway directly into deep water.  The cost was approximately £5,000.  Once the Langham was in place, the RNLI decided that the locations at Brighstone, Atherfield & Ryde were no longer required so they were closed.   Brook was closed in 1937.
