Trinity House

Bracket of lamps outside Trinity House

Bracket of lamps outside Trinity House

This very fine bracket of lamps is one of several to be found outside of Trinity House. I was passing by there last week on my way back to the office via Tower Hill after witnessing SV Tenacious when she was passing through Tower Bridge.

Trinity House, which has an impressive frontage, of which I’m sure I should be able to locate a picture (and will do so one day) is the headquarters of the General Lighthouse Authority for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar; and some other maritime matters are also headquartered there.

I hope my lighthouse-loving reader will not be disappointed to be reading about the London headquarters of the General Lighthouse Authority rather than looking at pictures of actual lighthouses. 🙂

If she’s really desperate, here are a few places where she can look at actual lighthouses by clicking on the thumbnails I have provided…

Beachy Head – Eastbourne
Newhaven
Newhaven
and Dungeness, Kent – old and new
Fleetwood, Lancashire
Smeaton’s Tower, now erected at Plymouth, but originally the Eddystone Lighthouse, 14 miles offshore
Pendeen, Cornwall
