Berwick Coastwatch

Berwick Coastwatch is an independent organisation run entirely by volunteers who give up a few hours a week to keep visual watch over all coastal areas around the bays and beaches of Berwick Upon Tweed.

We also keep a listening watch on the VHF marine distress channel 16 and liaise with the Humber Coastguard Operations Centre.Berwick Coastwatch is inspected periodically by the Coastguard and has "Declared Facility' status.

Where necessary we also liaise with the local Police and also operators of the local caravan park.

We provide advice and information to visitors using the beaches and walking the coast path. We also carry out mobile patrols, who will visually check for signs of further cliff erosion, checking any safety equipment is useable and periodically pick up the ever increasing amounts of plastic rubbish found on the beaches.

All funds raised by Berwick Coastwatch are used to maintain and equip the lookout tower and to provide a service to the local community

 Berwick Coastwatch Look-out tower is located at Magdalene Fields Golf course.
