South Foreland Lighthouse
South Foreland Lighthouse
Sparkling white in the sunshine, the lighthouse is now owned by the National Trust since ceasing service in the late 1980's.
A beacon of safety situated high on the white cliffs it used to guide ships past the treacherous Goodwin Sands.
The first lighthouse to use electricity and the site of the first international radio transmission.
The keeper's cottage now serves refreshments as "Mrs. Knott's Tea Room."
