Anvil Point lighthouse is built of local stone and was completed in 1881. The light is 45 metres above mean sea level and gives a white flash every ten seconds, with a range of 24 nautical miles. The light was automated in 1991 and the cottages have been renovated and are now available as holiday lets.
