Webcam: Live view from Happisburgh Lighthouse

Norfolk Happisburgh
Norfolk Happisburgh

A view towards the North Sea from the observation platform of the Happisburgh Lighthouse.

The lighthouse is the oldest working light in East Anglia and was built in 1790. Originally one of a pair, the tower is 26m tall with the lantern itself 41m above sea level.

Now the only independent lighthouse in the country, it underwent a facelift in July 2009 when volunteers repainted the building to bring a new coat of paint to its familiar red and white mark on the Norfolk landscape.

Happisburgh itself is a small village on the north Norfolk coast. The residents live in the constant shadow of coastal erosion taking away their homes.

The webcam view is updated every 30 minutes during daylight hours.
