Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,,

This is Plymouth Lighthouse, known locally as Smeaton's Tower since it was built by that remarkable engineer John Smeaton.

This 'barber's pole' lighthouse used to stand on Eddyson Rocks, warning shipping, until its rocky island became unsafe and it was removed, stone by stone, to be rebuilt here, on Plymouth Hoe.

The tale of the lighthouses at Plymouth is an interesting story and is worth discovering from this site .

As you can see, the lighthouse is an icon for tourists, standing as it does on Plymouth Hoe, along with a large wheel and memorabilia from Plymouth's past. (Ha! Ha! Not the oldies sitting on the bench!!)

Have a lovely Sunday, Bev :-)
