Tater Du Lighthouse

Tater Du Lighthouse was built by Trinity House in 1965, marking a headland on the south Cornwall coast to the west of Penzance

The lighthouse was built as an automatic installation and was opened by HRH The Duke of Gloucester. A red sector light warns shipping of the Runnelstone Rocks.

The lighthouse, which is built of white concrete blocks, was modernised in 1996/7. The lighthouse is now monitored and controlled from Trinity House’s Planning Centre in Harwich, Essex.
