A Note from the Artist

Twr Mawr Lighthouse is located on the stunning and tranquil Ynys Llanddwyn (Llanddwyn Island). It is situated at the far end of the Island, marking the western approach to the Menai Strait.

The 1873 tower stands at 10m high and has a diameter of 5.5 metres. It is tapered in a style characteristic of Anglesey windmills.

It may have been constructed by an Anglesey stone mason, and it is possible that the tower itself it may have been a windmill at one time.

The cottages nearby have been used as craft workshops, and the local community here once serviced pilot-boats and lifeboats.

The optic, silver-plated reflector and Fresnel lens are dated 1861 and were used into the 1970s. The lantern was originally lit by six Argand lamps with reflectors.
