Tater Du Lighthouse was built by Trinity House in 1965 as an automatic installation and was opened by the Duke of Gloucester (see video link in the 'Related Links' section of this page). The lighthouse marks a headland on the south Cornwall coast to the west of Penzance. A red sector light warns shipping of the Runnelstone Rocks.

The lighthouse, which is built of white concrete blocks, was modernised in 1996/7.
