Lizard Lighthouse
Although still a working, automated lighthouse, this site is now a popular tourist attraction. The former accommodation is to the left with a covered passage linking to the engine house on the right. This contains generators and the air compressors for the foghorn. There is a foghorn to the right at the end of the engine house.
