- The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes. Marcel Proust
See Whiteford Lighthouse
This lonely cast-iron structure is the only wave-washed lighthouse of its kind left in all of Britain.
It rises 44 feet above the water and is only accessible at low tide, and even then there’s a risk of wet feet. Whiteford Lighthouse is unique in its survival as the only wave-swept cast-iron lighthouse in British coastal waters, and deeply significant to the history of cast-iron architecture.
