New Members Wanted


As of November 2016 we have 44 watchkeepers and 10 members under training but we are always looking for more people to join.

We are officially open every Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays but we also open every Friday's, Monday's and Tuesdays aswell when we have enough watchkeepers available. It is hoped that we will in time have enough members to open 7 days aweek. The watches are as follows : Summer Hours 09.00 - 13.00 and 13.00- 17.00 and Winter Hours are 09.00 - 12.30 and 12.30 - 16.00.

If you a few hours every month to spare, to do something different and worthwhile then give the station a call to arrange a visit and see if you would like to give it a try.  


Currently 56 NCI stations are operational and manned by over 2600 volunteers keeping watch around the British Isles from Fleetwood in the North West, through Wales, to the South and East of England to Hornsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire. 

NCI watchkeepers provide the eyes and ears along the coast, monitoring radio channels and providing a listening watch in poor visibility. They are trained to deal with emergencies offering a variety of skills and experience, and full training by the NCI ensures that high standards are met.








The words National Coastwatch Institution and Eyes Along the Coast and the NCI logos are Registered Trademarks of NCI.
