Visitor Policy
Visitors are welcome at all times providing we are not involved with any ongoing incident
Access

Access to the station is either by foot, which can be a bit arduous for some people or by the Cliff Railway a more gentle way of ascending the hill. The ground is fairly uneven but the veiws are well worth the journey up the hill whichever way you make it to the top. The coastal path to Clarach and Borth runs past the front of the station and there is also a cafe quite close to us. There is no access to the top of the hill by car for the public.

About

Currently 56 NCI stations are operational and manned by over 2600 volunteers keeping watch around the British Isles from Fleetwood in the North West, through Wales, to the South and East of England to Hornsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire. 

NCI watchkeepers provide the eyes and ears along the coast, monitoring radio channels and providing a listening watch in poor visibility. They are trained to deal with emergencies offering a variety of skills and experience, and full training by the NCI ensures that high standards are met.
