Description

Bovbjerg Lighthouse

Lemvig

A bit gloomy is the 24 meter high Bovbjerg right out to the West Coast in Ferring parish. It is a significant clay hill  that shoots out into the sea at this point. In 1876-77 they constructed a lighthouse on this place where many shipwreks had occurred. A concrete foundation crashes in 2,5 meters depth, and this included a pedestal and foot-cornice on which the 26 meter high, relatively wide tower is built. The tower stands today with a beautiful red ocher color.
