This is a Pillar Lighthouse building which is situated at Burham on Sea.
The Low Lighthouse lights were inactive between 1969 and 1993 and were re-established on 31 December 1993. The High Lighthouse lights were permanently discontinued at the same time.
The lighthouse has a focal plane of 7m and provides a white flash every 7.5s plus a directional light (white, red, or green depending on direction) at a focal plane of 4m. The light is shown through a window at the front.
The lighthouse is painted white with a single vertical red stripe on its front face and is 9m tall with a conical roof and mounted on 9 timber pilings.
It remains an active aid to navigation and is visited by many thousands of walkers every year.
I hope you like it.
