Trinity House Obelisk
Trinity House Obelisk
The rather squat obelisk of Portland stone was erected on Portland Bill in 1844 by Trinity House. Its purpose was to warn ships to keep clear of a low shelf of rock offshore at Portland Bill. It was threatened with demolition in 2002 in spite of being a Grade II Listed monument, but was saved by public subscription.
