St. Agnes lighthouse is a 17th century lighthouse situated on St Agnes on the Isles of Scilly. It was the second to be built in the western approaches (after the Lizard lighthouse of 1619); it was also only the second lighthouse station to be established by Trinity House (after Lowestoft in 1609).
After the completion of Bishop Rock Lighthouse in 1858, St Agnes’s lost its status as a landfall light and England’s westernmost lighthouse. It was, in any case, prone to fog, partly due to its inland location .
In 1911 the St Agnes lighthouse was decommissioned, having been superseded by Peninnis Lighthouse (a 17-metre-tall black and white steel lattice tower situated on the southern extremity of St. Mary’s island). The old lighthouse tower continues to be maintained as a daymark for shipping.
