Photographer's Note

I have shown Godrevy lighthouse before, but this time a closer view.

Standing 26 metres high, the lighthouse was built between 1858-1859 on Godrevy Island in St. Ives Bay.
Situated 300 metres (980 feet) off Godrevy Head. It marks the Stones Reef, which has been a hazard to shipping for centuries.

It was modernised in 1995, converted to solar powered operation. The light was moved from the lighthouse tower to a new steel structure on the adjacent rock in 2012.
It is now monitored and controlled from Trinity House's Planning Centre in Harwich, Essex.

The shot was taken from the cliff path, a very popular walk. The white painted lighthouse can be seen for miles!

Two more shots in the workshop.
Thanks for looking.
