A Note from the Artist

Burry Port harbour was built between 1830 and 1836 to replace the harbour at Pembrey, located 350m to the west.

Burry Port was once the main coal exporting port for the nearby valleys, but the dock now houses the only marina in Carmarthenshire, and the harbour was dredged especially for this purpose.

The Lighthouse is a harbour light with a reflector and is situated on the west breakwater of the outer harbour. Built in 1842 the light consists of a 24 ft white painted, stone, circular tower with a black gallery and red lantern. As this was a harbour light, the annual cost of its upkeep, which cost £32 in 1844, was not met by a direct charge to shipping.

In 1995-6, the lighthouse was restored and is now operated by Carmarthenshire County Council. The current white flashing light is visible for 24km and is now an important landmark for the Burry Port Yacht Club and the Burry Port Marina.
