Characteristics

Description

White tower. Character:Fl (3) 15s

Update
On the 11th March 1861 at midday, the lighthouse tower was struck by the sea,l smashing 23 panes, washing some of the lamps down the stairs, and damaging the reflectors with broken glass beyond repair. So much water cascaded down the tower that it was impossible for the keepers to open the door of the tower, they had to drill holes in it to let the water out.

Update
La lanterne du phare, situee, a 60 m au dessus du niveau de la mer, fut brisee par une vague dans une tempete en mars1861. Cet incident donne un idee de la violence de la mer dans ces parages.
