National Coastwatch Institution (NCI) is a voluntary organisation which was first set up in 1994 to help restore a vital watch along UK shores.
The Tower at Rossall Point has sophisticated technology and radar aswell as the eyes and ears of a dedicated team of volunteers who watch the water for any sign of distress or issues and the site has daytime watch for 365 days per year.
New volunteers are always welcome and you can contact the team to make further enquiries.
If you would like to visit to learn more about the site and the Coastwatch work you can contact the team to arrange a visit. Group visits are also welcomed by pre-arrangement.

It is unfortunately not possible to drive right to the door of Rossall Point. There is a car park closeby, off Princess Way and opposite the sea cadet base. From that point it's a short 10 minute walk along the promenade to Rossall Point.
