Longships Lighthouse

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longships_Lighthouse

The original tower was built in 1795 to the design of Trinity House architect Samuel Wyatt. It contained a fixed array of eighteen Argand lamps with reflectors, arranged in two tiers and shining out to sea.[3] The lantern was 79 feet (24 m) above sea level but very high seas obscured its light.[4]

In 1869 Trinity House began constructing a replacement.[5] The building of the present granite tower used much of the equipment that had previously been used in the construction of the Wolf Rock Lighthouse.[5] It was equipped with a first-order fixed optic built by Dr John Hopkinson of Chance Brothers.[6] The tower was first lit in December 1873 having cost £43,870 to build.[5] By 1884 it was showing an occulting light[7] with red sectors warning ships away from the Brisons and Rundlestone.[8]
