LUNDY

SS14SW Magazine immediately south south
1938-0/2/4 west of Lundy South Lighthouse

II

Magazine for storing signal explosives. Circa 1897, for
Trinity House. Granite, rendered and blocked out. Rendered
barrel-vaulted roof with semi-circular gable ends. Small
rectangular plan building divided into 2 cells, with a
doorway at either end and small hatch to each cell facing
lighthouse.

Exterior: 1 storey. Landward facing north elevation has 2
small square hatches with iron doors with ring handles and
moulded iron gutter on ornate cast-iron brackets. Similar
gutter and brackets on south elevation facing sea but no
openings. Doorway at either end with plank door. Plain
rendered plinth.

Interior: not inspected.

Note: The magazine was built with the South and Lundy North
Lighthouses (qv) which were built when the Old Lighthouse
(qv) was abandoned in 1897, because it was often obscured by
fog being so high above sea-level. (Lighthouses, their
Architecture, History and Archaeology:D B Hague and R.
Christie; Lundy:A and M Langham.).
