This is up on the hill to the north of Portland Bill, near to the Old Higher Lighthouse. The station commands a 180 degree clear view of the sea. The National Coastwatch Institution (NCI) is a voluntary organisation set up in 1994 to staff lookout buildings closed by the Maritime & Coast Guard Agency, as a cost-cutting exercise.
