Happisburgh Lighthouse is the oldest working light in East Anglia, and the only independently run lighthouse in Great Britain.
Built in 1790, it was originally one of a pair of leading lights. The low light was shorter than Happisburgh’s 47 metres and when they were aligned with the rear tower peeping above the low light , it marked safe passage around the southern end of the treacherous Haisborough Sands.
Today the lighthouse is painted white with three red bands, and has a light characteristic of 3 white flashes, repeated every 30secs and a range of 29km.
Saved as a working light by the local community, it is maintained and operated entirely by voluntary contributions.
These lighthouses were more landmarks rather than lighthouses in the usual sense.
