“I noticed the popularity of webcams during 2020 when the pandemic set in and felt the Island could really benefit from a series of cameras showing off our beautiful Island.

“We really do have some picturesque sights and the webcams allow anyone, even all over the world, to see live images 24/7.

“Great for both locals and tourists, as is focused at giving information to tourists, it adds an additional, but unique element to those searching for their next place to stay.”

James Adsett, Camera Installer, said:

“Our first install was on the Chairlift at the Needles, it was a tricky install climbing up the chairlift towers, but wow what a view!

“The site can get in excess 100mph winds during the winter months so the installation needed to be secure”
