Coastwatch Lookout Station, Beach Road Car Park, PO13 9LB
Wherever there is a National Coastwatch Institution (NCI) station, a watchkeeper will be looking out for danger and ensuring safety on the water and along the coastline.
High technology and sophisticated systems such as radar and telecommunications have vastly improved safety at sea, but there is no substitute for a watchful pair of eyes. Drop in and talk to the Watchkeeper about their vital voluntary work along our waters and shores. See some of the equipment they use to keep a look out!

HODs visitors are most welcome at the Lookout, although, when an incident is ongoing, this may not always be convenient and the duty watchkeeper may ask visitors to call back later.
The National Coastwatch Institution (NCI) is an entirely voluntary organisation keeping a visual watch along UK shores. Local people contribute many skills and hours to keeping our coast as safe as possible.
