A Note from the Artist

The Nash Point Lighthouse is a Grade II listed building near St Donats in the Vale of Glamorgan and dating from 1831–32.

There were two lights, a high light and a low light, located at a distance of around 300 metres from one another. The leading light was removed during the 1920s because of the shifting location of the Nash sandbank.

The lighthouse was designed by James Walker, the chief engineer for Trinity House. First lit in 1832, the lighthouse was electrified in 1968. Nash Point Lighthouse became the last manned lighthouse in Wales and was automated in 1998.

The lighthouse is now open to visitors, and is often used as a wedding venue. The fog signal, no longer needed by ships, is sounded on the first Saturday and third Sunday of each month as an additional attraction to visitors.

Currently, cottages around the lighthouse can be rented out as holiday accommodation.
