The present Farne Lighthouse was built in 1811 to a design by Daniel Alexander, and consists of a circular white tower 13 metres in height and with keepers’ cottages situated to the rear.
In 1910 the smaller Farne light was discontinued and the present lighthouse was converted to automatic operation with an acetylene light controlled by a sun valve, a flow control valve that automatically shuts off gas flow during daylight.
This remained in operation until the Farne Lighthouse was modernised and converted to solar powered operation in late 1996.
The lighthouse is now controlled and monitored from the Trinity House’s Planning Centre in Harwich, Essex.
