The cameras automatically reset themselves each night. Unless there is a hardware failure, no camera should be unavailable for more than 24 hours. Please wait that long before reporting a glitch. Each camera runs on completely separate hardware, but they share an Internet connection.

Update September 2013

It is amazing how many people have emailed to ask why the cameras have been moved! They have not been moved. These is some scaffolding on the front of the building. This is there so we can repair a leaking roof. Should be gone in a week or so (around end September).

Usage information

The cameras have now been running since 2005, and have continuously grown in popularity. This has been purely by word of mouth. We recently passed 400,000 hits per month and expect to get to 500,000 quite soon. About 30% of our users are located in the region, and about 30% outside the UK. Over half the access is from browsers on mobile devices.
