The 11m high lighthouse situated on Ramsgate’s West harbour arm was built in 1842 and is a Grade II listed building.
The lighthouse is active and emits a continuous red light (originally the light varied from red to green depending on the height of the tide at the harbour entrance).
It replaced an earlier lighthouse by Benjamin Dean Wyatt, which had been poorly positioned and suffered damage from passing ships.
Now powered by electricity, originally it was lit by an oil lamp, with a fourth-order Fresnel lens.
Carved in the stonework of the lighthouse are the words ‘PERFUGIAM MISERIS’, which are translated as ‘refuge for those in need’.
