Old lighthouse open for visitors
The famous Lizard Lighthouse is reopening to visitors on Sunday.

Artefacts previously on display at the Trinity House Lighthouse Museum in Penzance will be at the lighthouse and in the old Engine Room.

The Lizard Lighthouse, at the most southerly point of mainland Britain, was commissioned in 1752 and has a visible beam of 26 nautical miles.

It is in a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for rocks, plant life, and fauna.
