Great news. The camera is back online. The presets are currently a little out but steering and live stream work fine.

Hi Sharon,

Sorry, we are not in the locality today. I did find this local twitter report which suggests the roads will be fine;

Good News!! The snow has now gone and all the roads and pathways in Fowey are clear. All the shops and restaurants are fully open.

Webcam team [Aug 31 2016 22:41] []
Please stop being rude and arrogant. This webcam is a free service, and we work hard to keep it going, so that everyone can use it. This has been the case for over 15 years. We don't restrict public use, but we do expect users to be polite and considerate, unlike the previous two comments. So, Pete and Blue, please feel free to go and use another webcam. But do us all a favour and stop leaving arrogant and rude comments, and let us get on with fixing the webcam for those people that appreciate it.
Pete [Aug 31 2016 15:12] []
Would be great if it worked... Sadly none of the other Fowey webcams work either. Lovely place, but not a great advert for the area really. If you are going to do stuff online, at least make sure it works. Than you

An update...BT installed the new optical fibres and router on time (very impressed), so we now have 200Mb internet. We're just working on integrating the camera today, so it should all be up by tomorrow hopefully!
Alan [Apr 17 2016 08:43] []
Hope Bt is done when they say as mine took 3 months longer than they said,and I only live over the hill from Fowey
Roger [Apr 14 2016 08:27] []
Thanks for the update. Hope your bill doesn't rise in proportion with the expected increase in Broadband speed!
Rog [Apr 11 2016 08:27] []
Not aware of any flooding? When and where? The webcam will be down for the next couple of weeks, as BT will be installing new optical fibres to the premises. But when done, we should have an amazing 200Mbps connection, which should make the webcam images much smoother! Will keep you informed.
Canute [Apr 11 2016 08:01] []
I think you have been flooded.
Roger [Apr 01 2016 16:22] []
Coincidence perhaps, but the only webcam in Looe also appeared to go offline at roughly the same time as yours... Hope your ISP can sort it soon for you. Good luck.
Roger [Mar 30 2016 17:34] []
Thanks for the update. Hope BT is better in your neck of the woods than they are here in Oxfordshire! Good luck with it.
Rog [Mar 30 2016 09:03] []

Did anyone spot Santa on the cam?

Johnnie Fisher [Dec 20 2015 21:09] []
I often look here to see if others are fishing. This spot is getting so popular that you have to check first! Anyone else heard that the Harbour are going to ban fishing with rods? It is already banned from the pontoons.
Richard Simmons [Dec 16 2015 11:09] []
I am in Warwickshire but got some builders doing a roof at Longsteps. Using you camera to check the weather. Not checking up on them, just interested to know if they can crack on or not.Enter Comment Here

I've had the same issue as Clive for a long while, though Mum with XP and older IE can still use it fine.
Clive [Aug 22 2015 16:33] []
Yep, Chrome works fine also - just doesn't show in Dearly Beloved IE!
Webcam team [Aug 22 2015 11:34] []
Hi Clive,
No add required as far as I can tell. Working fine for me with Safari and Firefox just now.

Clive [Aug 22 2015 11:11] []
Is there an add-on needed to see this webcam - I used to see it but don't now! I think it is some kind of Active-X/Panasonic add-on?
Sarah, Stafford [Aug 16 2015 09:39] []
Not long now...week today we will be arriving in Fowey. Can't wait!
Jan, Cheshire [Aug 02 2015 11:24] []

Foweycam Follower [Nov 06 2014 17:42] []
I felt I had to comment on this - I have been looking at this camera for years and it is lovely to see how the weather and tides are down in beautiful Fowey when I can't be there myself. I do agree that perhaps we should not be able to zoom in on people's windows across the water, however, I could stand on the quayside (or at a window) and look across the water with a pair of binoculars and nobody would say a thing would they? It is a shame that there are people in this world who like to find things to complain about. These are the people who are sucking the life out of our society with their (media driven) belief that danger lurks around every corner and that it must be stopped at all costs. There are cameras watching us everywhere these days whether we like it or not, we don't have a choice. We ought to be much more worried about the government and business continually tracking us on our phones and the internet than a small insignificant webcam! And as for reading the number plates - what exactly would anyone gain by this? Sorry, rant over...
Quent [Oct 25 2014 12:45] []
Olivia, you really should get out more! As one who has used this webcam often, you are are talking rubbish. Moving the camera to any other than a preprogrammed position is laborious. So what you could read a cars number plate? You could see people on the slipway. I wonder how many voyeurs there actually are? It takes one to know one I would say!
Olivia [Oct 24 2014 08:46] []
When I first discovered the Fowey webcam, I was delighted. Growing up, I spent all my holidays in Bodinnick and was there again this summer with three young children. So it was lovely to be transported back in the autumn thanks to the wonders of the web. But my joy quickly turned to concern. Almost immediately, I found in the evening that someone was deliberately moving the focus up to the bedrooms of the OFI, where you could see what the people inside were doing. When I tried to move the camera away to other scenes, this ‘someone’ moved it straight back up to the bedrooms. There is no pre-programmed setting for such a close-up view of the OFI, so it was clearly deliberate, and no way of knowing who was doing it. For those commenters who say that the OFI gets free advertising from the webcam, do you think it’s good publicity to tell guests, “If you want river views, please remember to close your curtains as soon as it gets dark, because strangers can watch you.”? In the same way, you could see straight into two other private homes overlooking the river; should Kits and Bill, their guests and holiday tenants also have their windows screened from Peeping Toms? I was able to watch the movements of people waiting alone on the slipway at night, could distinguish the number plates of cars on the ferry in the day, and see with exceptional clarity young families playing on the old slipway on the Fowey side, blissfully unaware that I or anyone else was watching them. Like the commenter below, I love the ‘innocent pleasures’ of Bodinnick and Fowey, and in order to preserve that innocence, I think the real right to privacy of the people there completely outweighs the ‘need’ of myself or anyone else to spy on them. Yes, we are all watched by CCTV by the police and private security firms, and there are pros and cons to that, but this is another league – how would you feel if you discovered that any voyeur in the world could anonymously go online and manipulate the CCTV cameras near your home to follow the every move of you and your family? I think it would go much further than ‘indignity’.
Roger [Oct 23 2014 09:26] []
Funny how WE have to suffer the indignity of being caught on 1000's of public CCTV cameras, without recourse, and yet the innocent pleasure of the River Fowey at Bodinnick and its immediate surroundings now has to be denied us...
Miss Piggy [Oct 22 2014 14:58] []
Please get the camera. Back on, I'm missing Fowey!
Quent [Oct 20 2014 14:53] []
Has Kits complained as well?
alan [Oct 20 2014 14:18] []
Camera is still not working,The hotel must be nuts if they are complaining about privacy,all they have do is close the curtains,just look at the free advertising they get.as some local we check this camera to see if the ferry is working or not.
Quent [Oct 18 2014 19:49] []
I think the camera is down.
Julie [Sep 28 2014 11:38] []
I think the hotel is missing out on all the free publicity they've had over the last decade. Do they complain about people using binoculars to look at the view? If so, tough!
Rog [Sep 28 2014 10:14] []
We'll try to make the obstruction a little smaller if we can, possibly hotel shaped. See if you can guess who complained?!
Rog [Sep 28 2014 10:08] []
Yes, afraid so. Someone put in a complaint about privacy :-(. So rather than shut the whole thing down, we're trying this instead.
Doug [Sep 28 2014 10:03] []
Are the obstructions ruining the view deliberate? Shame you can no longer see Boddinick, what a pity!
Rog [Aug 14 2014 09:34] []
Hi Sarah. I've posted your comment for you, as you need to follow the instructions in red below! As for the weather, I'm afraid I'm not in Fowey at the moment, but I'm sure someone local can comment :-)
Sarah [Aug 14 2014 09:33] []
Looking forward to spending another wonderful holiday in Fowey, only 2 more days to go!! Whats the weather been like?

How is it that at the time of this comment the camera is zoomed in on and viewing someones lit window ?
peterlloydhiggs@msn.com [Aug 01 2014 13:10] []
Thanks re: the zoom, I see what you mean now. Never mind I will be able to see Fowey with my own eyes again soon. (I realised my mistake with the boxes and reposted)
Rog [Aug 01 2014 13:03] []
No, sorry, it appears that your comment did post. Glad to see you're not a robot after all :-)
Rog [Aug 01 2014 13:00] []
Hi Peter, your last comment didn't post, probably due to our new anti-robot feature! The camera will still zoom, if using the preset view options. But it will only zoom to the locations we have chosen, to avoid private property. Thanks.
peterlloydhiggs@msn.com [Aug 01 2014 12:57] []
How is it that the Zoom function seems to be in use even though the option is not available. I have watched in home in on several locations over the last 15 minuets or so, some examples have appeared on the hourly stills.
mc.clift@sky.com [Jul 29 2014 19:04] []
Great to see what is actually happening in Fowey right now ;-) we are there next week and can't wait to get there!
Julie [Jul 28 2014 10:36] []

Rog [Jul 26 2014 18:19] []
Hi Peter. I've had a look and there are 4 people connected at the moment, so it may be just others mucking around clicking on the presets at random. If it doesn't improve later, I'll reboot it. Thanks.
peterlloydhiggs@msn.com [Jul 26 2014 18:14] []
The camera just seems to have gone mad at the moment, turning side to side & up and down, plus even though the zoom is off at the moment, randomly zooming in and out ! Love the camera, often in Fowey but nice to look in when not there.
Simple Simon [Jul 08 2014 09:05] []
If you don't want to be seen, draw your curtains!
Rog [Jul 01 2014 20:56] []
Hi All. Just to let you know, the zoom hasn't stopped working. We've had to turn it off, after receiving a complaint about privacy, while we work out what options we have. Hopefully we can turn it on again soon, as it does ruin the experience somewhat. We'll happily accept any knowledgable legal advice on the subject! Will keep you posted.
al meek [Jul 01 2014 20:32] []
I like looking at this what a pity the zoom has stopped working
Roger [Jun 30 2014 20:16] []
Camera seems to have lost its zoom facility which makes reading the thermometer more difficult! Enjoy looking at the vista - hope to be back again next year.

The webcam is working,because the clock is working. It seems that there is something over the camera which is stopping it showing anything. Fred, Radio Cornwall was hopeful earlier that the weather would stay clear enough. The display starts at 1830 local time.
Fred [Aug 22 2013 17:02] []
Sad I could not wave to them if there people in a dory hull colour unknown making strange gestures please make strange gestures back. As the sun sets here in Cyprus I hope the weather is good enough for the display.

Hi Mr Brightwell. As far as we're aware, the camera is working fine. It certainly works okay for me, and we've had no reported issues. What browser are you using? Have you changed browser recently? When you click on the webcam link (above), does a new tab open up in your browser? What is displayed? Thanks.

Enter Comment Here Hi, name is Laurence Norwin-Allen from Harlow, Essex. I came across your site whilst looking round the country for weather as I have to drive to Ipswich to go to the dentist. I know, tried all the ones in Harlow, only found one worth their salt and he only does private patients since they re-organised payments for them. So after 10 years of dissatisfaction I rang my old dentist and asked to come back on his books. The man, he say yes. Never having anything go wrong with my teeth EVERY time during the 6 months between visits is worth driving 150 miles to see him. I am impressed by the way I could operate your camera - magic. Thanks Laurence

I think maybe it's a problem with your browser, as all the images and live camera are working fine on Chrome and IE. What browser are you using?
rlbrice@talktalk.net [Jul 03 2012 11:42] []
when you click on the images the computer puts up a flash and makes a clicking sound and you can't bring up the picture. Also the camera does not work. Good idea though.

I exchange calanders with a cousin each year. This time I received one depicting old railway posters. January depicted a scene painted on the shore opposite your site. I looked on google Earth to see if it had changed much in 60 years and noticed that you had a web-cam, so I clicked on it. I have to say that there isn't too great a change over a half-century. I live in Central Scotland and I'm listening to the New Year's Day Concert from Vienna at the moment. A Guid New Year to you all. Prosit!

Just one thing- the webcam would have to be accessing some powerful witchcraft to see Polruan- it is Bodinnick across the water- Polruan is much further along and opposite the Harbour entrance.

RE:Last comment. All for homegrown withcraft and if a quick spell can make the children well again go for it.
Dr Kinardly B It [Nov 02 2011 16:54] []
I followed the chat about Halloween with interest; with sympathy for Cornwall and its natural scenes, the waterways; yet, noting that witchcraft is indeed still lurking in Polrhuan, if not still active, then the view towards that town seemed not out of place for one special occasion. But there is more; I have it, from enquiries that the sale of the decoration was promoted by the British Heart Foundation; further, children at the Great Ormond Street hospital were expected to access the webcam; perhaps Old Bill and Mike might forgo one day of tranquitly in the year, noting the free access they get to the superb webcam?
Fowey Exile [Nov 02 2011 13:00] []
Pleased to see someone elso thinks Halloween is a rip-off perpetrated by the Americans to sell plastic junk and sweets made in China.

Crispian Pearce [Aug 02 2011 16:03] []
Just recently stayed at the cottage, we had a lovely time. From what I can tell, its somewhere between the broadband router and the camera. The IP forwarding is fine, but once the traffic gets to the router, it seems to get held up. Could be that there's an IP issue or the port forward has for some reason been lost. Good luck fixing her up :)

Dear Foweycam Users!
There's a new feature on the webcam page. To the left of the comments section is a link to a viewer where all the captured images from the webcam can be viewed. Enjoy!
Leave a comment if you find any problems, think of any new features or even praise!!

holly [Sep 13 2010 10:05] []
just back from another happy weekend in Fowey. Lovely to be able to see it still, via your camera, thanks!
Pastelist [Sep 05 2010 05:45] []
Just got back from a family visit in California and am glad to see the images to remind me to get to packing my paints. I reread Wind in the Willows from my Dad's library shelf while there. Are there any cam shots of the old river?
Rog [Aug 27 2010 22:33] []
Yes, thanks. Router rebooted - working again now.
Wayne [Aug 27 2010 18:40] []
Is the camera down?
Tony [Aug 23 2010 18:44] []
A friend introduced me to Fowey and to this cam. Now I can't wait to see it all in person.
pastelist [Aug 19 2010 18:37] []
Good to see view of where I will be with painting friends come over from US in Sept. Thanks for the update.
Jeff [Aug 07 2010 13:25] []
Just come back from a fantastic fortnight stay in Fowey, in one of the town houses in Passage Street, just across from the slipway. It really is one of the most beautiful locations in the world, and great to be able to see it again via this web camera.
Julie(over the road) [Aug 04 2010 15:14] []
Hi,again, Rog,it sure has been a bit wet today but with sunny intervals. And for anyone wondering, Fowey is great in any weather! I don't know why was happening earlier but the webcam is working though I tried several times.
Rog [Aug 04 2010 10:37] []
No, the camera is working. I've just checked it and seen a wet looking Fowey.
Julie (over the road!) [Aug 04 2010 10:32] []
Hi, Rog, Mum says the camera was working well yesterday but I think it has succumbed to the mizzle today because it is offline again.
jude25@hotmail.co.uk [Jul 23 2010 19:35] []
I'm sure you will be able to see The World on the Fowey Hotel webcam..what time is it due in the harbour?
Rog [Jul 21 2010 14:10] []
Yes, not sure if The World will make it far enough up the estuary to be spotted on FoweyCam, but it's due in Fowey from 29th July until 31st July. If not, the Fowey Hotel webcam may be a better bet.
colin Hertfordshire [Jul 21 2010 13:40] []
Have visited fowey several times and love the place and great to see a web cam so i can remind myself what i am missing. Can't wait to come back and will keep eye out on web cam for the world cruise ship when it comes into port.
Jude. [Jul 17 2010 22:21] []
Just saw The Maid of Decking..so funny! I love this camera.Enjoyed watching the swans to.will give you all a wave in a couple of weeks!

Camera's back working now.
Rog [Jul 15 2010 19:50] []
Okay, thanks. Looking into it now...
Wayne [Jul 15 2010 19:23] []
Down again. Maybe the bad weather!
Rog [Jul 13 2010 16:04] []
Foweycam is back! Sorry for the downtime.
Sam_Packman [Jul 12 2010 11:19] []
its still as beautiful as last week, thanks for letting us stay for a week with George!
Rog [Jul 11 2010 11:08] []
Yes! Thanks for letting us know, we're looking into it now...
Julie [Jul 11 2010 11:07] []
hi, Rog and Co, looks like it had tumbled down again!
Rog [Jul 02 2010 20:03] []
It's working again now. Blame it on the Netgear router :-)
Rog [Jul 01 2010 19:48] []
Yes, it looks like the camera has a problem - thanks for letting us know. We're currently trying to diagnose the issue - please bear with us. Thanks.
Wayne [Jul 01 2010 19:30] []
Didn't work for me. Always interesting view, will look back later.
Bob [Jun 29 2010 12:36] []
I think your camera has crashed - It's not working today.
Tim leaman [Jun 08 2010 09:04] []
We come down to Fowey every year and its great to see Fowey Live.
KALLA [May 24 2010 13:20] []
Cool idea, keep the weather and I am on my way shortly. ;-)
Rebecca Stanton [May 02 2010 10:37] []

Brilliant webcam - staying at Polruan in June, can't wait.
nebmarriot@aol.com [Apr 19 2010 17:12] []
Excellent views
rudco@telkomsa.net [Apr 06 2010 08:01] []
You certainly have a beautiful spot. From Durban, South Africa, I watched my grandchildren playing on the deck over the Easter weekend. I would love to be there live one day. Kind regards, Pete
Garry [Apr 04 2010 10:16] []
Excellent web cam! Working prefectly. I love Fowey! Now I can see it without visiting.
Rog [Apr 02 2010 18:23] []
Yes, it's live, zoom-able and track-able. Just click on the big image and a new window will appear. Click on the live image to track, zoom buttons to zoom. Have fun!
patholt123@btinternet.com [Apr 02 2010 14:00] []
great to find a webcam further down river than the fowey hotel,can you tell me if the cam is suppossed to be live like the fowy hotel?
Rog [Mar 12 2010 16:27] []
Charles, the router needed reloading. Glad it's back.
Charles Walker [Mar 12 2010 16:25] []
Welcome back... I like to take a daily check on the ferry, state of the tide, temperature, weather in general and whether any large vessels are parked upstream so I've been missing the link. What was the problem?
Rog [Mar 10 2010 18:38] []
Thanks for the heads up of the live image problem. We're looking into it now...
Charles Walker [Mar 10 2010 17:28] []
The live image has disappeared; what's happening?
Claire [Feb 22 2010 13:33] []
Can't wait to get back and see the place again!

I didn't like plucking it too! Feathers don't taste too good, however. Was it cold ....
Jude; [Jan 31 2010 17:03] []
Fantastic..Been using the Fowey hotel webcam, but this is better..When I'm not in Fowey can keep an eye on things..didn't like watching the bird being plucked though :(
jimmymuir@hotmail.co.uk [Jan 26 2010 23:52] []
Whenever I miss Fowey I will use this facility. Thanks for the opportunity. Jim Muir
Charles Walker [Jan 15 2010 11:20] []
The camera seems to be focussing on the raindrops on the glass - is there a focus control or can you wipe the glass please.
Teresa and Colin [Jan 14 2010 21:20] []
We've spent many hours sitting watching the Bodinnick Ferry from its old home - that will tell you how long we've been visiting Fowey. These shots bring back many happy memories.
Neil and Melissa [Jan 14 2010 11:48] []
We have got real snow here in Hexham, but we'll soon be back in lostwithiel Street. Great cam and features.
Charles Walker [Jan 13 2010 11:09] []
Interesting trying to navigate in thick fog [presumably the same for sailors] In fact is the ferry running?
Julie [Jan 10 2010 14:09] []
A bit of a belated happy new year! Mum likes the new webcam features. Thanks for the enhancements. best wishes!
Adey [Jan 08 2010 10:52] []
I was hoping to see some snow!!! The thermometer shows a balmy +1 deg C - positively sweltering!
Mark [Jan 07 2010 07:56] []
V.interesting, good to check out your local conditions.
Charles Walker [Jan 06 2010 18:20] []
Great to see how you're faring through the snowiest winter in years
Rog [Jan 06 2010 10:16] []
Marcus, no problem, glad it's providing a useful local service! And it looks like the ferry is running today.
Marcus [Jan 06 2010 10:02] []
Very useful to see if the Ferry is running in bad weather lately - hope you don't mind us using your webcam for this. Thanks! Marcus
John Brooks brooks209@btinternet.com [Jan 04 2010 09:58] []

The new webcam is amazing. Excellent image quality and the 21x optical zoom is fantastic. Well done to the installer and the configurator!
Tony [Dec 10 2009 10:58] []
But see the Sun above the mist - mistifying in fact .... New camera arrived - will get down to installation - noting the world is waiting ..
Rog [Dec 09 2009 09:46] []
It does look bleak. However, to liven things up, we've got the new 21x optical zoom camera arriving for installation today! Hopefully it will be ready by the end of the week.
Adrian [Dec 09 2009 09:32] []
Looks very cold and grey at the moment :o(
bob.cole@blueyonder.co.uk [Nov 23 2009 09:01] []
We stay at Penmarlam,Bodinnick, regulary, 5 or 6 times a year. Quite often wave at the webcam on the veranda from the ferry.Very useful as we can check< on the labtop, if the ferry is running when the weather is yuk. Regards, Bob & Sarah
Adey [Nov 14 2009 08:23] []
Very windy this morning. Heavy swell on the River Fowey. Hope the local ducks don't get seasick! Adey
pbaldwin@comcast.net (Paul) [Nov 08 2009 17:45] []
I live in Tucson, Arizona, a dry place. It's a relief to view webcams such as yours that prove that ordinary people can and do live near waters able to support large ships. I look forward to doing the same. Living near water, that is, not supporting large ships.
Dianne Palmer [Oct 29 2009 22:31] []
It's lovely to be able to 'visit' Fowey whenever we need a 'quick fix' of Cornwall, our favourite place!
christine.lambden@btinternet.com [Oct 24 2009 15:32] []
Hello from York, I was delighted to find your webcam today. I grew up in Bodinnick, sadly I've no immediate family there now,but it's wonderful to think I can check up on 'home' whenever I like. Many thanks to you and modern tech'.
mick.grayson@ntlworld.com [Oct 23 2009 17:33] []

Just checking out the weather as I am coming down on Sunday for a week!
Adey [Aug 09 2009 08:31] []
Noticeable how dawn is getting later. I remember the 4am image being light at the end of June. Looks like those ducks (7:59) are going to have to go for a swim if the tide gets any higher! Adey
Rog [Aug 07 2009 16:21] []
Mr Warner, glad you found the webcam, hopefully it brings back some nice memories of your stay here. Feel free to check availability below, and do look out for the return visit discounts.
Mr Warner [Aug 06 2009 21:56] []

Enter Comment Here To Julie's Mum, yes. There is activity, experimenting with a screen which, if guests there are very sensitive about being seen, they could put over the camera window. We're trying to find (guest and friend Paul, staying now) where it should be without cutting off the river views completely. The Becks beer screen we saw for a week, recently. It'll be there for use if they prefer and, we hope, not too frequently. The view now (e.g. Sat night/Sunday morning is what it would be, if used. Perhaps we'd run ads. on the back of the screen ....?

Thanks for ggetting rid of the Becks,it's great for viewing the canoeing conditions.

Yeah, we're trying to work out why the Becks can/box has been put there. Bear with us!
marcusgrose@yahoo.co.uk [Jun 22 2009 18:52] []
I can see a Becks beer can.
Ade [Jun 19 2009 18:21] []
It appeared very bright for a dye or similar! Looking in daylight I can't see anything or any remnant of such a thing! Curious eh?
mr_adey [Jun 19 2009 07:33] []
It's some sort of luminous gunk/dye left on the table and shelving. Note the positional change between 23:00 and 00:00 (so it's not on the lens) and it can be seen, faintly, on the 05:00 image too. mr_adey (is that four now?)
Rog [Jun 18 2009 23:46] []
Yes, I see it. The 23:00 shot has captured it. I'd say it was a small luminous right handed boxing glove. Anyome happen to leave a small right handed luminous boxing glove in Fowey?
Ade [Jun 18 2009 22:42] []
Its not on the lens, definately on the bench, is anyone else watching?
Ade [Jun 18 2009 22:35] []
Its still there! What is it???? Help!
ade [Jun 18 2009 22:31] []
Has anyone else seen the glowing shape on the terrace in the shape of a 'boxing glove' or a small 'bear'!!!!! may sound daft! Im hoping someones put something there rather than it being a 'spooky' thing! Regards another Ade

Tony@unispacekent.co.uk [Jun 07 2009 14:25] []
A word from the sponsor! After a long period of technical hitches, it's up and running. Great - but for how long? Well - I've said to Roger Mc that if it's still up and running without much trouble, in 6 months, I'd buy additionally a X 21 optical zoom camera to add to the site. Watch this space - for 6 months! Taking bets.
Julie [Jun 06 2009 18:06] []
Every time I look the webcam gets better and better! Thanks for allowing us the chance to look. It is quite surreal seeing the view from No6 from our house opposite!
