From the railway station at Barry Island or the public pay and display car park on Station Approach, head towards the main beach on Barry Island (Whitmore Bay) On reaching the promenade head east (left) towards the headland on a well maintained tarmac path. After approximately 0.5 miles the white painted Station will be seen ahead.

Alternatively park on Friars Road to the east of the station and walk down the tarmac path in front of the new houses. After a few hundred yards the station will be seen ahead. Note the last part of the path down to the station, whilst being tarmac is somewhat steep.



Currently almost 60 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 Filey in North 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.








The words National Coastwatch Institution and Eyes Along the Coast and the NCI logos are Registered Trademarks of NCI.
