I attended my closest National Coastwatch Institution at Gwennap Head today. Not much to be seen as the fog was pretty overpowering but the technology they use was impressive.

Like St Ives, recruiting volunteers and raising funds to maintain the lookout are the core challenges ahead.

I learnt today that the former MP David Harris, who still lives in the Truro area, was influential in setting up the National Coastwatch Institution in 1994.
