Artist's Description

Portland Bill is the graveyard of many vessels that failed to reach Weymouth or Portland Roads. From the shore you can see the Portland Race, a meeting of the tides that causes a continuous disturbance.

Portland Bill Lighthouse guides vessels heading for Portland and Weymouth through these hazardous waters as well as acting as a waymark for ships navigating the English Channel.

There are actually three lighthouses at Portland Bill, but it is the taller red and white one that is in service today, albeit automatically controlled. One of the older lighthouses is now in residential use while the other, the Old Lower Light, is home to The Bird Observatory & Field Centre.
