More info

In this greatly enhanced 3rd edition of his classic book, which has become the standard work on the subject, Christopher Nicholson vividly describes the construction and history to the present day of some of the worlds most famous lighthouses.

It brings the story of the rock lighthouse completely up-to-date - from the day the first granite block was laid, through construction, automation, the disappearance of the lighthouse keeper, right up to the technology of today with the use of solar and wind power.

This is a joy to read with its mix of exciting text, some of the most dramatic colour photographs of British lighthouses ever taken, a selection of beautiful, hand-coloured plans and drawings, a new chapter about Rockall, the most unusual rock 'lighthouse' of all, and a detailed appendix.

This handsome book is sure to become an essential part of any lighthouse or maritime enthusiast's library and will appeal to anyone who enjoys tales of endeavour, ingenuity and dogged determination.
