The present beacon is 5th lighthouse built on this enormous shingle spit and the 3rd to be built by Trinity House. The lighthouse is over 43m tall to be visible over the nearby nuclear power station. Built from pre-cast (and coloured) concrete rings the lighthouse was intended from the outset to be unmanned.
This model is part of a range of models of English and Welsh lighthouses produced under the terms of a licencing agreement with Trinity House.
