From Boscastle on the north coast and along the west and south coasts of Cornwall you will find National Coastwatch Institution stations, staffed by volunteers, where you can get information on local conditions or report situations where people may be in difficulty.

In 2007 Lesley MacLennan cycled Cornwall visiting every (open) NCI station to raise funds in memory of her late brother Graham Hawkey - a diary with photos of her trip and many NCI stations is online.

WEATHER WATCH CORNWALL

The late Graham Hawkey, founder and developer of Destination Cornwall, was passionate about weather reporting and had a dream to see all NCI stations with a computerised system. He named this dream Weather Watch Cornwall.

Since developing his site in 1998, Graham was in daily telephone contact with the National Coastwatch Institution’s (NCI) watch keepers at their lookout stations reporting on wind, temperature, sea state, swell and general coastal conditions. These reports were invaluable to those living and staying in Cornwall but were very time consuming, for all concerned, to compile and distribute. Graham’s idea was to add a level of technology that would support the indispensable role of the watch keepers, with their eyes on the sea (in the above logo), by using a computerised weather monitoring system. He later appreciated that NCI Polruan had just such a system (Davis).

These weather systems link with various sensors and instruments and feed into weather display software that provides a car dashboard-like view on the computer screen, with dials and charts showing exactly what is happening with the weather, minute by minute (see for example Polruan: www.polruan-nci.org.uk/weatherpage.htm).  Add this to the naked eye reports from the watch keepers and you have the most accurate and current weather reporting system available.

If you have such a weather station in Cornwall and are willing to provide a link through Destination Cornwall, then we’d love to hear from you.  Please email us and we will reply within 24 hours.
