After finding out before our trip that the Obscura was closed for the season, my son was very disappointed. A keen photographer and fanatic of unusual architecture.
I contacted them directly on the off chance that someone may be working up there, and to my amazement, the kind volunteers offered to open it especially for him.
Howard was brilliant, and showed us round the inner workings of the building, then spent 1.5 hours with us, telling us all about the history of the building and the surrounding area.
There are a few other ones round the country, but this one is unique in the fact that it has 11 views at once, rather than 1 rotating view.
Images look like static prints, until you look closely and start to see the sea rippling, then grass moving and birds passing. Quite enthralling.
Well worth a visit, and make sure you talk to the volunteers, rather than just walk in and out like some reviewers have done.
Need a bright day to get the best from it.
Back again next time.
