Churchtown Farm's Scilly Webcam

We have a new live webcam - it is best viewed on as big a screen as possible but you can still see quite a bit on your phone. Obviously if it's dark there isn't a lot to see!

This is the view due west from the farmhouse to the island of Tresco. If you look closely in the middle of Tresco, you can see the top of Watch Hill on the island of Bryher peeking through. On the left side are the twin hills of the uninhabited island of Samson. On the right is South’ard Carn (close to Lowertown Quay and the hotel), with the island of Teän lying just beyond. 

Between us and Tresco are scattered some of the many tidal rocks, ‘ledges’ and sand bars which are beautiful and treacherous in equal measure. Beyond Tresco is the Atlantic Ocean and eventually America. In fact, if you look carefully at the left side of the view on a clear day you will see the Bishop Rock lighthouse, marking the end of the historic Blue Riband trans-Atlantic route. If we have big winter storms then watch the Golden Ball Bar to the right of Tresco for some spectacular waves!
