Alderney is the Channel Island nearest to the French coast, and surrounded by two strong currents: the Swinge and the Alderney Race. Located at the eastern end, Mannez Lighthouse has watched over vessels navigating the dangerous waters of Alderney since 1912.
The Lighthouse was built after a large boat, the SS Liverpool, ran aground in the adjacent Cats Bay. At 32m high the lighthouse tower was painted white with a black band to make it more visible to shipping during the hours of daylight, this has make it a prominent island landmark.
The former keepers’ dwellings adjoin the tower, there was a resident lighthouse keeper until as recently as 1996. However the lighthouse now has LED lights with a range of 22km, this is controlled from Trinity House in Harwich.
