(Happisburgh Lighthouse, Norfolk, NR12 0PY)

 

10:30am-4pm Open Day

 

Happisburgh Lighthouse is the oldest working light in East Anglia, and the only independently run lighthouse in Great Britain.

 

Built in 1790, orginally one of a pair - the tower is 85ft tall and the lantern is 134ft above sea level.

 

The 'low light' which was discontinued in 1883 was 20ft lower and the pair formed leading lights marking safe passage around the southern end of the treacherous Haisborough Sands.

 

Today the lighthouse is painted white with three red bands, and has a light charcteristic of 3 white flashes, repeated every 30secs with a range of 18 miles.

 

Saved as a working light by the local community, it is maintained and operated entirely by voluntary contributions.

 

The lighthouse is open to the public on occasional Sundays and Bank Holidays throughout the summer.

Adults £3; Children (16 and under) £1.

We regret that children under 1 metre in height are not able to climb the 112 steps to the lantern.
