Beachy Head Lighthouse Construction
Beachy Head Lighthouse.
I’ve been visiting the lighthouse down at the foot of Beachy Head with my drone working on a set of pictures and video.
In my research, I have found these great photographs of the construction from the turn of the century.
- The light house at the foot of Beachy Head was built between 1900 and 1902 by a crew of brave workers
- The Admiralty decided the existing lighthouse on the cliff top was not effective during heavy fog or mist
- Pieces of granite were cut and transported from Cornwall and lowered 500 feet down from the cliff top
- The light house is still operational although the team of three light house keepers were removed in 1983
