Long Nab Coastguard Lookout
Long Nab Coastguard Lookout
This lookout, built in 1927, was one of several along the Yorkshire Coast which were regularly manned in bad weather. During World War II Long Nab was manned 24 hours a day by two coastguards. The lookout continued in use after the war but closed in 1992 as a result of the increased use of radar and a reorganisation of the Coastguard Service.
The brick-built Bomb Shelter was built during the 1939-45 war to offer some protection in the event of enemy action.
In 1993 the lookout was taken over and renovated by Scalby Nabs Ornithology Group. It is now used as a birdwatching station to study coastal migration.
This area is part of the North Yorkshire and Cleveland Heritage Coast, an outstanding coastline where special attention is given to care for its natural beauty and its wildlife, to help people enjoy the coast and to assist those who live and work here.
