SP4355 : Electronic Lighthouse

taken 13 years ago, near to Wormleighton, Warwickshire, Great Britain

Electronic Lighthouse
Electronic Lighthouse
This installation largely screened by bushes is a DGPS (differential GPS) navigational beacon operated by Trinity House for mariners (see SP4355 : Electronic Lighthouse notice ). This site couldn't be much further from the sea! The Oxford Canal is only a hundred yards or so away and admittedly does execute a 180 degree turn around Wormleighton Hill but hardly calls for such a beacon ;-)
