Lynmouth Foreland Lighthouse

Lynmouth Foreland Lighthouse was built by Trinity House in 1900 as a further aid to navigation in the Bristol Channel, 20 miles east of Bull Point

The round white tower is 15 metres in height, set on the extremity of the headland two miles E.N.E. of Lynmouth.

The optic is a 1st Order dioptric apparatus, eight panels in two groups of four, revolving on a motor driven mercury float pedestal.

Lynmouth Foreland Lighthouse was automated in 1994 and is now monitored and controlled from Trinity House’s Planning Centre in Harwich, Essex.
