A Note from the Artist

Southwold Lighthouse was built by Trinity House in 1887 as a coastal mark for passing shipping and as a guide for vessels sailing into Southwold Harbour. The lighthouse is located near the centre of the seaside resort and towers above the more modest suburban semi’s and bungalows.

Construction of Southwold Lighthouse began in 1887 and was completed in February 1889. The lighthouse replaced three local lighthouses which were under threat from severe coastal erosion at Orfordness to the south. A temporary light was shown from a wooden structure while the tower was being built.

The Lighthouse has featured in the BBC children’s television series Grandpa in My Pocket.

Southwold station is now monitored and controlled from Trinity House’s Planning Centre in Harwich, Essex.
