The webcam you see the live images from, is situated on the East Tower of the Pier at Bognor Regis (UK)
It is with great thanks to the owners of Bognor Regis Pier to allow this independent webcam to be installed to provide the 24/7 live views with sound that is does.
The Bognor Regis webcam Idea
Back in 2009, it seemed that a lot more information of Bognor's biggest asset... the beach, was missing on the internet. With that this independently run website was born. One thing that was lacking was a webcam to show the world what a great beach Bognor Regis has. So on June 21st 2012, this webcam was installed and went live for the first time.
The camera is made by Earthcam who also provide the streaming service that produces the 24/7 live streaming views that include sound.
The camera has its own wiper and a heating/demisting element for those damp rainy days as well as an internal fan for when the sun is shining. All to make sure the camera runs the best it can in all weathers throughout the year.
The camera is in a static position in that it has a fixed view. However, it is zoomed in from to time, to show a closer image of the beach. When this happens, the camera automatically resets to the full view on the hour.
Also at certain times throughout the year, the camera maybe re-positioned. These notifications will appear above the webcam live streaming view.
We hope you enjoy the live webcam view.
Happy viewing, Colin Clark
