A Note from the Artist

Flamborough Head Lighthouse is located at Flamborough in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The Lighthouse acts as a waypoint for passing deep sea vessels and coastal traffic, and marks Flamborough Head for vessels heading towards Scarborough and Bridlington.

A lighthouse was first established at Flamborough by Sir John Clayton in 1669, but was never kindled. The present lighthouse was designed by Trinity House architect Samuel Wyatt and constructed by John Matson of Bridlington in 1806. It first exhibited its light on 1st of December that year.

In 1940 the lighthouse was electrified and further modifications took place in 1974. An electric fog signal was installed in 1975 replacing diaphone apparatus. In former times a rocket was discharged every five minutes in foggy weather reaching an altitude of 600 feet.

Flamborough Head Lighthouse was automated in early 1996.
