A Note from the Artist

Start Point lighthouse was designed by James Walker in 1836 in the gothic style then popular. The station sits hunkered down at the end of a winding and exposed road hewn from the rocky headland.

The tower originally housed two keepers and their families on the first floor, but over time the internal space was re-designed and the living space improved.

In 1844 a separate flat roofed dwelling was added but as the Principal Keeper expressed a preference to live in the tower, this was handed to his assistant. As part of a general updating of the station in 1871, the three story building you now see was completed and two of the stone floors in the tower were removed.

The lighthouse was automated in 1993 and the Keepers withdrawn. A caretaker still lives on site and the lighthouse is open for limited tours during the year.
