First Webcam Picture

Now that Waverley is moored back at George Prior’s berth she is in sight of the webcam. This means you can follow progress on a regular basis. Images are recorded in the archive every 15 minutes.

This is the first picture of the paddler taken by the webcam at 14:15 on 7th February 2003.
