The Old Lighthouse at Dungeness in winter
The Old Lighthouse at Dungeness in winter
It was snowing and bitterly cold when this picture was taken. The Old Lighthouse, the fourth at Dungeness, operated from 1904 to 1960 when its proximity to the nuclear power station led to a fifth lighthouse being brought into operation further east and nearer the sea. The third lighthouse operated from 1790 to 1904 and was located where the circular white building is seen here.
