BURNHAM`S LIGHTHOUSE ON LEGS

Living in the land locked Midlands one has to travel at least 90 miles to reach tidal water and the sight of a real lighthouse. One image002such area is the Severn Estuary which, with the Bristol Channel, is tidal with a vengeance.  At 40feet plus its tides are the second highest in the World.  I have long been intrigued by the unique wooden lighthouse on the beach at Burnham on Sea and since the 2000 Millennium year I have used opportunities during short stays at nearby Mooseheart to find out more about it.

 

Not quite a pharos foray, but a pharos related foray to the Northern lighthouse Board's workshop and depot in Oban.
