This education resource has been prepared to meet the National Attainment Targets and Curriculum requirements of Key Stages 1 & 2. Our aim has been to bring to younger children some of the key concepts of our work, with material that is easy to use for teachers and visually appealing for children.
About Trinity House
Since gaining a Royal Charter from Henry VIII in 1514, Trinity House has been primarily concerned with the safety of shipping, and the well being of seafarers, in the coastal waters of England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar. As a General Lighthouse Authority, our remit is to provide aids to navigation through some of the busiest sea-lanes in the world.
We deploy in excess of 600 aids to navigation, including lighthouses, lightvessels and buoys as well as a satellite navigation service. All our lighthouses are fully automated and are no longer manned, although we do have lighthouse attendants who carry out maintenance and cleaning duties.
