A Request for Webcam Addresses

I would like to produce for all Ribnet users, a list of as many relevant webcams as I can.
John would then put it up on the website in a manner which anyone can access the data.
The purpose would be to offer all users a “real-time” view of the place you were thinking of going to today/near future. This would give you some idea of the local conditions.
Not unnaturally, it is you who are likely to have the necessary data to hand, I would ask for your assistance.
I have done some research and have come up with a list, so far, of only 20 such sites.
Many that I have looked at require you to pay, are not working anymore, are not “live” or suffer from some other affliction that makes them useless from our point of view.
Could I ask that anyone who has a viable webcam link to the marine (could even be just a slipway) scene to e-mail me please at:
bdmelliott@aol.com
and I will incorporate it into what I hope to be a useful source of info for all of us and organise the list by area, in geographic sequence.

I thank you in advance.

Brian, I assume you've waded through this site: http://www.webcam-index.com/Europe/England/ ? And this one: http://www.webcamsearch.com/links/Europe/United_Kingdom ?

P.S. Great idea Brian but you've really set yourself a task this time!
