This former WW2 command post is now one of 50 stations of the National Coastwatch Institution, a voluntary organisation working alongside the Coastguards. Visitors welcome, all donations gratefully received. Condition ? The post is in good order and put to good use, easy to find - just look for the eminent Martello Tower up there on the East Cliff off Wear Bay Road. The bolt may well be intact but is now hidden from sight under the new felt roof cover.
