National Coastwatch Institution

  Holehaven lookout station in Holehaven Creek is part of the National Coastwatch Institution, a registered charity, and manned by trained volunteers seven days a week. They currently have 49 stations placed around the coastline of England and Wales maintaining a visual a lookout during daylight for yachtsmen, canoeist, fishermen, in fact anyone that may come in to difficulty on the water. Other stations in our area are at Whitstable and Herne Bay in the south and a little way east, along the Thames from here, there is one at Shoeburyness. Further up the coast there are stations at Felixstowe, in Suffolk, and in Norfolk at Gorleston, the main port where all the Broads tides are worked from. Please give them a look, and spread the word about their valuable work if you can.
