The Coastguard Cottages at Blackgang, as you can see, are in a sad dilapidated state of repair, uninhabitable and now used as store rooms for the Blackgang Theme Park.  The various ones around the Island were all built to the same specifications and mostly in blocks of five.  Owing to very bad cliff erosion each winter, these at Blackgang are becoming ever closer to being lost for ever.
