North Lundy Lighthouse
North Lundy Lighthouse
Lundy's north lighthouse was built in 1897 to replace the old lighthouse, which still stands in the middle of the island. The 17 metre high white painted tower was designed by Sir Thomas Matthews for Trinity House. The white light flashes once every 15 seconds and is visible for 17 nautical miles. The light was produced from a 75mm petroleum vapour burner until 1971 when electricity was installed. The North Station was automated in 1985 and modernised in 1991 when it was converted to solar power with a new proprietary lantern manufactured by Orga installed on the disused fog signal building.
