National Coastwatch Institution - great work and all done by volunteers.


Ever since the Government saw fit to introduce the closure of coastguard stations around the UK...



 volunteers from the NCI have manned dozens of disused lookouts around the English coastline...



like this one at Cape Cornwall...


and this one at Gwennap Head above Porthgwarra...


manned by a total of 30 volunteers like Michael...


and his trusty companion Oscar...


that used to be home to Lands End Radio station through which all shore calls via the 'big set' radio went - it closed in 2000...


this short video captures the sterling work and comforting, reassuring voice that was so familiar to fishermen and other seafarers off the Cornish coast - especially during the winter months.
