Its current owner, Former Governor-General Sir James Carlisle comments that this is one aspect of life at The Watch House that he will miss the most. “We get the most glorious sunsets here. As a little boy I loved to watch the sun disappear into the horizon. At school we learned at school that the earth goes around the sun, he adds with a smile. But watching the sun drop over the edge like that, I was quite sure they were wrong.”
