Portland Bill Lighthouse
Portland Bill Lighthouse
This was erected in 1906, replacing the two old lighthouses. Its revolving light can be seen 18 miles away on a clear night. It was fully automated in 1996, and is now open to visitors on most days during the summer. There is a gift shop and some exhibits on the ground floor.
