A Note from the Artist

Lowestoft Lighthouse is a lighthouse operated by Trinity House and located to the north of the centre of Lowestoft, Suffolk. It stands on the North Sea coast close to Ness Point, the most easterly point in the United Kingdom.

The Lighthouse was built by Trinity House in 1874, the latest in a series of towers established in 1609 to safeguard vessels along this dangerous stretch of the East coast.

Two lighthouses were originally established on the low lying foreshore known as Lowestoft-ness to lead vessels through the Stamford Channel, an inshore passage which no longer exists.

The lighthouses were rebuilt in 1628 and again in 1676 when the rear light was moved tothe cliff as the light was no longer solely used by vessels feeling their way along the coast, but also by those approaching from far out to sea. The low light was eventually discontinued in 1923 and the high light was automated in 1975 and modernised in early 1997.
