Walk to Lynmouth Foreland Lighthouse, Devon

Perched on a clifftop on the North Devon coast more than 60 metres above the sea, Foreland Lighthouse was completed in 1900 and has been protecting ships in the area ever since, with electricity finally arriving as recently as 1975.

The decision was made to automate the lighthouse in 1994, and now the former lighthouse keepers cottages are available to rent as a National Trust holiday cottage to allow visitors to spend a night pretending to be a lighthouse keeper and looking North across the Bristol Channel for passing ships, and to the South Wales coast beyond.
