Beachy Head Lighthouse Construction

Beachy Head Lighthouses

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
