Note: The North and Lundy South Lighthouse (qv) were built when the Old Lighthouse (qv) was abandoned in 1897, because it was often obscured by fog, being so high above sea level: The North Lighthouse stands only 165ft above high water and cost £45,000 to build. It has been unmanned since 1978 and is controlled from the South Lighthouse.
