Cromer Lighthouse, Norfolk, taken 1961
When I visited this lighthouse it was still a manned lighthouse and it was possible to go inside up to where the light was to see all the workings, the last bit involved climbing a ladder. It was all very interesting.

Before the erection of a lighthouse at Cromer lights for the guidance of vessels were shown from the tower of the parish church, these were small, but served a useful purpose for many years.

The present lighthouse, a white octagonal tower standing about mile from the cliff edge, was built in 1833 and converted to electric operation in 1958. In June 1990 the station was converted to automatic operation and is now monitored from the Trinity House Operations Control Centre at Harwich.
