Welcome to NCI Folkestone lookout station
Covid 19 Update
We are pleased to announce that our Folkestone Station at Copt Point has now re-opened on a restricted single man watch basis.
To remain compliant with current HM Government, and our own national guidelines, we will be operating solo watches together with a remote buddy system to adhere to social distancing, and the safety of our watch keepers.
We are presently operational between 0900 and 1700 hours (or dusk) every day and, in conjunction with any changes to official guidelines, will review this on a regular basis with the expectation of a gradual phasing back to full time, fully manned operational status once circumstances allow.
In the meantime the current situation dictates that the station will remain closed to all visitors until further notice.
