Calf of Man Lighthouse

The Calf of Man and its offshore rocks have four lighthouses, the High and Low Lights, the new light and the Chicken Rock light.

The original (1816/1818) two lights consisted of two circular stone towers with light keepers accommodation with the two towers, 560 feet apart, aligned to indicate a safe course past the dangerous Chicken Rock.

These were known as Calf of Man High and Low lighthouses that worked together to mark the offshore Chicken Rock.

The High Lighthouse is 60 feet high whilst the Calf of Man Low Light is a similar design but just 50 feet high.

The High and Low lights were discontinued in 1875 when the Chicken Rock light was established.

A new Calf of Man Lighthouse was established in 1968, sitting between the old High and Low lights but this was discontinued when the Chicken Rock lighthouse was upgraded in 2007.
