St. Bees Lighthouse

St. Bees Lighthouse is located on St Bees Head south of the harbours of Maryport, Workington and Whitehaven. This is an area of cliffs that was a danger to small coastal vessels trading between the ports of Wales and the Solway Firth.

In 1822, St. Bees’ original tower was destroyed by fire and Trinity House decided to substitute the coal light for oil, St. Bees was the last coal-fired lighthouse in Britain. The current lighthouse was built in 1866.
