Coastwatch lookout station at Gwennap Head
Coastwatch lookout station at Gwennap Head
This lookout station is high on the cliffs at Gwennap Head, looking out over the sea south of Lands End. These stations used to be manned by HM Coastguard, but now they are maintained by an organisation called Coastwatch which is funded by public contributions. The open door on the right of the building leads to a room with reading and information about the local geography and history, and also explains what Coastwatch is. If you look very closely through the upper window you can see the lookout peering through some powerful binoculars.
