A Note from the Artist

The Beach Lighthouse (also known as the Lower Light is a 13m tall sandstone lighthouse in Fleetwood, Lancashire.

The lighthouse was designed in 1839 by Decimus Burton and Capt H.M. Denham. Burton had been commissioned three years previously by Sir Peter Hesketh Fleetwood as the architect of the new town of Fleetwood.

Unusual for a lighthouse, it is in neoclassical style with a square colonnaded base, square tower, and octagonal lantern and gallery.

The Lower Light stands on Fleetwood sea-front and was built with its counterpart—the Upper Light, or Pharos Lighthouse—to provide a navigational guide to shipping entering the Wyre estuary.

Together the lights provide a leading line when the Pharos Light is directly above that of the Lower Light.

The two lighthouses were first illuminated in December 1840 and ran off the town’s gas supply, before conversion to electricity in the late 20th century.

The Beach Lighthouse was designated a Grade II listed building by English Heritage on 26 April 1950. The lighthouse is managed by the Port of Fleetwood.
