Rampside and Roa Island
ROA ISLAND 10A - Roa Island Watch Tower
The Watch Tower, Roa Island, Barrow in Furness, Cumbria.
This old Customs House was built on Roa Island in 1847 to monitor the Piel Deepwater Channel. The Customs House contains a boat house from where the local customs officer could sail out into the channel, and board boats to check their cargo. As the iron ore trade declined, the Customs House passed into the hands of Roa Island Mission who held Sunday services there.
