Peveril Point

Perched at the end of Peveril Point, on the eastern headland to the south of Swanage bay, Swanage NCI (National Coastwatch Institute) is one of the oldest stations, opening on this site on 15 April 1995,  built by the members in 2001 under the guidance of Ian Surface, the station's first manager, a local builder.

 NCI volunteers keep watch along the coast for small boats and shipping.  The Swanage team  looking out over the dangerous ledge which has caught out a few vessels cutting inside the Peveril Ledge Buoy, have  received the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service .
