Where is the Coastguard Station?

Interestingly tonight we were due a visitor to the station, who had travelled down from Bristol.

Having arrived in town their SatNav gave up so the person asked a local !

"Where's the Coastguard Station" ? The local said " oh that's up at Peveril Point next to the Lifeboat station. "

The first we knew of this was when our great friends at the National Coast Watch called us and said are you expecting a visitor? Yes we are can you send them our way .......

The Swanage Coastguard station is in North Beach Car Park off De Moulham Road.

Whilst we were at Peveril Point from 1842 till 2009 , we moved.
The lookout at Peveril Point is manned by volunteers of NCI not Coastguards.
