This newly revised and wholly redesigned edition is a complete guide to the lighthouses of England, Wales and the Channel Islands. It includes every known lighthouse past and present, from the largest and best known, such as Beachy Head, Eddystone and Skerries, to the smallest harbour lights and daymarks, such as Gribben Head in Cornwall.
There are outstanding photographs of every tower and its associated buildings, and a history of each lighthouse together with key data and how visitors can access the light. A historical introduction looks at Britain's lighthouse heritage, lighthouse keepers, historic lighthouses, and how Trinity House came into being and what its role is today.
