When it was built, the original tower of Bull Point was 10m high and only 21m from the cliff edge. It was topped off with a cylindrical lantern which housed a six wick oil lamp set in a revolving first order optic.
One fateful day in 1972 the principal keeper felt tremors underfoot and noticed large cracks appear in the ground. Suddenly the floor dropped an inch or two and a strange rumbling sound was heard followed by a crash. 50 ft of the cliff had just sheared off and dropped into the sea and now a further 50 ft had subsided.
After assessing the damage and potential future hazards, a decision was made that a brand new station would need to be built.
The new Bull Point was designed and built so that all the equipment from the old lighthouse was utilised after some necessary modifications. The lighthouse is now fully automatic with equipment operating at pre-set times. The fog signal was discontinued in 1988.
