A Note from the Artist

The name Tater Du doesn’t refer to potatoes, but rather comes from the Cornish “torthel du” for Black Loaf and refers to the rounded greenstone cliffs , unique amongst the granite of the wider coastal area. The area is rich in history and the walk to the lighthouse from Lamorna Cove along the South West Coastal Path is very pleasant (in good weather) and not too difficult. Nearby stands the Merry Maidens neolithic stone circle where legend tells us, nineteen maidens were turned to stone for the misdeed of dancing on a Sunday, while nearby two ancient megaliths called the Pipers represent the musicians who provided the music for this debauchery.

A short distance from the lighthouse is the famous Logan Rock at Treen.
The lighthouse itself is Cornwall’s most recent, being built as late as 1965. The lighthouse, which is built of white concrete blocks, was modernised in 1996-1997. Tater Du is now monitored and controlled from Trinity House’s Planning Centre in Harwich, Essex.
