Henry Winstanley's Eddystone Lighthouse in a Stormy Sea iPhone case by 


My vector drawing of Henry Winstanley’s lighthouse on Eddystone Rocks in a stormy sea created in Gimp and DAP and a sky from my house in Romania.

The first lighthouse on Eddystone Rocks was an octagonal wooden structure built by Henry Winstanley. Construction started in 1696 and the light was lit on 14 November 1698.

The lighthouse survived its first winter but was in need of repair, and was subsequently changed to a dodecagonal (12 sided) stone clad exterior on a timber framed construction with an octagonal top section as can be seen here. This gives rise to the claims that there have been five lighthouses on Eddystone Rock. Winstanley’s tower lasted until the Great Storm of 1703 erased almost all trace on 27 November.
