The east facing webcam is located on the east tower on the pier at Bognor Regis West Sussex on the south coast of the UK - see map below.
It is with 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.
A website idea created by Colin Clark
In 2009 I was living in Felpham and it was the case that back then, there was little positive or useful information on the Internet about Bognor Regis and its biggest asset, the beach. With so many fond and happy memories of the beach, I created and run this independent website.
A webcam idea
Later on, I did think that a webcam could perhaps also let more people know about Bognor Regis and the beach. So after a lot of hard work, and thanks to the owners of Bognor Regis pier - on June 21st 2013 I installed the first ever webcam in Bognor Regis was installed and went live for the first time.
The camera stream is streamed by Streamdays.
The camera has its own wiper and a heating/demisting element for any damp rainy days as well as an internal fan for when it's hot. All this is to make sure the camera runs the best it can in all weather conditions throughout the year.
The camera is in a static position in that it has a fixed view. However, it maybe zoomed in from to time, to show a closer view of the beach. When this happens, the camera automatically resets to the full view on the hour.
Please feel free to ask any questions about the webcam, or visit our Facebook page for any updates or news.
