Maughold Head Lighthouse is located on the headland of the same name at the southern end of Ramsey Bay on the east coast of the Isle of Man.
Designed by Charles and David Stevenson, The lighthouse consists of a 23 metre high masonry tower, with the lighthouse keepers accommodation built on the headland above at the same level as the lantern. A set of 127 steps links the tower to the keeper’s cottage. The optic was supplied by Chance Brothers of Smethwick, the fog signal and other ancillary equipment by Dove & Co of Edinburgh. The 1st order Fresnel lens is still in use.
Maughold Head Lighthouse became operational on 15 April 1914, and the Bahama Bank Lightship was subsequently taken out of service.
With a focal height of 65 metres above the sea, the light has a nominal range of 28km, and has a characteristic of three flashes of white light every thirty seconds. The fog signal, which formed the major part of justification for the station, produced a single blast every 90 seconds. It was deactivated in 1987.
Following automation in 1993, the former keeper’s cottages were converted into private accommodation.
The light and tower continues to be maintained by the Northern Lighthouse Board.
