Alderney Lighthouse in the Fog. The Fog Horn is to be Finally Silenced by 


The Foghorn in this lighthouse has been sounding since 1910 (well it is not the original horn any more, but still…), but will be silenced this spring :( The lighthouse is to be downgraded to save power, and I guess in response to new GPS navigation aids.
When I took this, my ears were hurting! Read the sign, it is worth it :)

    LOL. I DID read the sign. That’ll wake you up eh!
    So sad to think it will no longer be in use shortly. Another one bites the dust! Good shot Neil.

  • LOL! Thanks for the comment Sarina!
    There are quite a few people on the island who will be happy to not hear that fog signal any more, I think! It is kinda sad though.
