Portland Bill Lighthouse


Dorset, UK, 1906

SKU: PL21-1 Categories: ,


Portland Bill at the extreme southern end of the huge shingle spit known as Chesil Beach has always been a hazard to shipping. Lighthouses have marked the spot since 1716 but the current 41m tower was built in 1906 – it replaced a pair of high and low lights that are now private dwellings.

The lighthouse is fully automatic but the keepers cottages are now a visitor center open to the public. See local announcements for opening times, etc.

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.
