A Note from the Artist

Godrevy Lighthouse was built in 1858–1859 on Godrevy Island in St Ives Bay, Cornwall. Standing approximately 300 metres (980 ft) off Godrevy Head, it marks the Stones reef, which has been a hazard to shipping for centuries.

The lighthouse stands on the diminutive and rocky but pretty Godrevy Island, at the centre of a circular grassy area enclosed by a low stone wall. Situated almost 5km out to sea in West Cornwall’s St Ives Bay, in stormy weather the island is exposed to the full fury of the Atlantic and the lighthouse shines its beam to warn passing vessels of the dangers of the Stones reef which stretches from Godrevy island in the direction of the town of St Ives.

Originally, the light was manned by two men at a time, working two months on and one month off, but landing keepers by boat was always a perilous activity at Godrevy and in 1933 the lighthouse was automated.
