A Note from the Artist

The earliest reference to a lighthouse on Spurn Point is 1427. From the 17th century there are records of a pair of lighthouses being maintained as leading lights: a high light and a low light.
In 1767, John Smeaton was commissioned to build a new pair of lighthouses. Smeaton’s high light; a 27m tower remained in use until 1895, but coastal erosion created problems with maintaining the low light and within a short time it had been washed away by the sea.
In 1895 both this low light and Smeaton’s high light were replaced by a single lighthouse designed by Thomas Matthews which still stands on the grass of Spurn Head. This later lighthouse was eventually discontinued in 1985 due to improvements to navigation.
