Lighthouse at Blackrocks Point
Lighthouse at Blackrocks Point
Bamburgh Lighthouse at Blackrocks Point, north of Bamburgh Castle, was established in 1910 and electrified in 1964. The squat tower is only 9m above Mean High Water. A cluster of 3 x 50W tungsten halogen bulbs provides light of 7,140 candela intensity, flashing white, red and green twice every 8 seconds. In good conditions, white light has a range of 14 nautical miles, and red and green 11 nautical miles. It is the most northerly land based lighthouse in England.
