Dreswick Point is the southernmost point of the main island of the Isle of Man located on the southern tip of the Langness Peninsula some 4 km from Castletown. Langness Lighthouse was established in 1880 to guide boats into Castletown. Before this time, a landmark known as the Herring Tower held a lighted flare to guide fishing boats.
Another factor in establishing a lighthouse on Langness (meaning Long Point) was the issue that the Calf Lights had a tendency to be enveloped in fog. Because of this, the Northern Lighthouse Board were eventually convinced of the advantage of a Light and Fog Signal at Langness and 14 February 1878 plans to start construction were sanctioned.
The lighthouse, designed by David and Thomas Stevenson was completed ahead of schedule and the light was first exhibited on Wednesday, December 1880.
