Crow Point Lighthouse

Crow Point Lighthouse was built as an unmanned structure in 1954 as a guide to vessels navigating the Taw and Torridge estuary in North Devon

Crow Point Lighthouse is a small tubular steel structure with the light just 7.6 metres above Mean High Water.

Originally powered by acetylene gas Crow Point Lighthouse was converted to electrical operation in 1978, and then solar power operation in 1987.

The lighthouse is now monitored and controlled from Trinity House’s Planning Centre in Harwich, Essex.
