A Note from the Artist

The first lighthouse at Avonmouth was built in 1839. Situated where the docks are today, it consisted of a 20 metre octagonal tower with a crenelated gallery.

The light was visible for 22km and marked the entrance of the river Avon where it met the Bristol Channel. Ultimately, the structure was demolished as work on the new docks began on the new docks in 1902.

During construction a temporary light on a wooden supports was displayed until by 1908, the two present lighthouses were complete.

Known as Avonmouth Docks North & South Pier Head, the two towers are built of Norwegian granite. Since 1991, the Bristol Port Company has been solely responsible for their operation.
