Photographs of Point Lynas Lighthouse, Isle of Anglesey, North Wales

  • As early as 1766, the need for a station point for pilots boarding vessels for Liverpool was required & Point Lynas was the site chosen.

 

  • The early pilots used a farmhouse as their lookout post. Later into the 18th century two oil lamps with Hutchinsons small metal ight reflectors set into a tower and showing in two directions.

 

  • Point Lynas Lighthouse as it is seen today was built in 1835 by the Mersey Docks & Harbour Board.

 

  • The lighthouse is unusual due to it's castellated tower and walls giving it the appearance instead of a Victorian country house.
