High and low lighthouses at Nash Point
High and low lighthouses at Nash Point
Looking westwards from near the high (37 metres) light to the low (25 metres) light further along the cliff. The pair were designed by James Walker in 1832 in such a way as to mark the sandbanks off the point at the entrance to the Bristol Channel. About a hundred years ago, the low light was abandoned but the high light is still operational.
