Location needed for webcam

Recommended Posts

We are looking for interesting Seaton Valley locations to install webcams. If you can help with this please email info@seatonvalley.co.uk

Ideally these would be town centre locations on business premises but anything with an interesting viewpoint can be used. We will provide all the equipment required which is modest and pay for the connection on an ongoing basis. In return sponsorship on the camera pages will be offered in perpetuity.

Mainly for a bit of fun. Our sister site Bedlington.co.uk has had one for a couple of years now and it has proved popular (https://www.bedlington.co.uk/forums/topic/5552-bedlington-goes-live/). It's used by expats to check in on for nostalgia reasons. People that can't make fair days and Christmas light switch-ons etc. Some people just like to wave for friends and family. The seemingly mundane can often throw up some nice surprises. There's a "secret wave" that only the members know ? Here's a screen grab from the Bedlington one that is only available to members.

There's been a few Abbey Road re-enactments on that crossing. 

Positioning of the camera is done so as not to impose on anybody's privacy and there is no recording. The resolution is high enough to be interesting but low enough to make nefarious purposes impractical. This is not about crime prevention or security.

    • The National Trust is to increase its membership charges to help fund its wide-ranging heritage and nature conservation projects.
      From next month, people over 26 will pay £3 a year extra, while family membership will go up by £6 a year. A family with two adult members will now pay £126 a year.
      Over-60s who have been members for at least five of the past 10 years will see a £2.52 annual rise and a joint loyal senior membership will go up by £4.80, while young people aged 18-25 will pay an extra £1.50 a year.
      There is no rise in the £10 membership for junior members aged five to 17 which was introduced last year.
      The trust said the increase would generate an extra £11million to pay for work to protect countryside and heritage, and major spending projects in the North East include two on the Northumberland coast.
      In 2017 the trust acquired its first stretch of Northumberland coastal land for almost 30 years in a £1.5m deal.
