A Note from the Artist

Strumble Head Lighthouse stands on Ynys Meicel, also known as Strumble Head, a rocky island at the northwest corner of Pencaer area, five miles west of the town of Fishguard, in northern Pembrokeshire, Wales.

The Lighthouse was built by Trinity House in 1908, marking the dangerous stretch of coast for vessels between Ireland and Wales.

A lighthouse in this position had first been mooted as far back as 1825 and the lighthouse replaces a light-vessel previously moored in the south of Cardigan Bay.

The station was built to ensure the safety of sea traffic between Ireland and Fishguard Harbour, located behind cliffs and a breakwater three miles to the east.

The light also formed a link with South Bishop light, 18 miles to the south-west. This stretch of coast is very dangerous, and some 60 vessels are known to have been lost along it in the 19th Century alone.
