The camera is run by the Ilfracombe Tourist Information centre, and their website is full of useful information about Ilfracombe.
This camera is an HD model moving through a pre-set movement program showing views all around the harbour including the "Verity" statue at the harbour entrance. Mouse over the picture to get a full screen icon too.
Ilfracombe is a seaside resort on the North Devon coast of England with a small harbour, and it is surrounded by cliffs. Because of the natural layout of the harbour, Ilfracombe soon became a registered port of refuge on the Bristol Channel.
In 1208 it was listed as having provided King John with ships and men to invade Ireland and in 1247 it supplied the ship that was sent to conquer the Western Isles of Scotland.
