The Needles lighthouse
The Needles lighthouse
Half of the seamost rock and the lighthouse are in the next square from the viewpoint. A yacht participating in the Round the Island race rounds the headland on a day of light winds. Replacing an earlier lighthouse further up the cliff behind us, this lighthouse was built in 1859 at a cost of 20,000. A helipad was built on top in 1987, and the light automated in 1994.
