Lundy Old Light

Built in the nineteenth century, the tall lighthouse atop Lundy Island was soon found to be impractical…sitting 500 feet above sea level, it was frequently obscured by cloud. It was replaced by much lower lighthouses at the north and south ends of the island. Today, the Old Light is open to wander in at will.

This week from the top we chilled out and enjoyed clear views of distant Cornwall, Devon, the Gower Peninsula and Pembrokeshire. There is nowhere better to sit and enjoy the sun setting into the Celtic Sea.
