St. John's Point Lighthouse

Photographs  Martin Edmondson 2005 & John H. Luxton 2006

Originally commissioned in 1844 to the design of George Halpin the hight of the tower was tripled in 1893. Until 1954 the tower was painted white with black bands.

 However in 1954 the tower was repainted in its present distinctive black / yellow colour scheme. The Lighthouse was automated in 1981.
