Old Coastguard Station

Heritage Open Day: Commanding superlative views of the beautiful North Northumberland coast, the Old Coastguard Tower was built in 1964 but four years later, was closed down and became derelict. The tower is now run and looked after by Berwick Coastwatch, an independent organisation run entirely by volunteers to keep visual watch over all coastal areas around the bays and beaches of Berwick-upon-Tweed. They also keep a listening watch on the VHF marine distress channel 16 and liaise directly with the Humber Coastguard Operations Centre. Members of the public can talk to the volunteers about the work they do and see the local wildlife.
Fri 17 Sep:10:00 - 16:00. Sat 18 Sep:10:00 - 16:00. Sun 19 Sep:10:00 - 14:00. Free Entry.
