A Note from the Artist

Hartland Point Lighthouse , a Grade II listed building[3] at Hartland Point, Devon, was built by Trinity House in 1874 as a guide to vessels approaching the Bristol Channel.

The point marks the western limit (on the English side) of the Bristol Channel with the Atlantic Ocean continuing to the west.  Under the direction of Trinity House’s Engineer-in-Chief Sir James Douglass, the lighthouse was built on a large rock at the tip of the point but the lighthouse was threatened by the undermining action of the sea to such an extent that boulders had to be broken from the cliff head behind the lighthouse to fall on the beach and form a barrier against the waves and in 1925 a new seawall was was ultimately built to ensure the lighthouse remained intact. 

The lighthouse is now monitored and controlled from Trinity House’s Planning Centre in Harwich, Essex
