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

small square hatches with iron doors with ring handles and
moulded iron gutter on ornate cast-iron brackets. Similar

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

Christie; Lundy:A and M Langham.).
