Belle Tout Lighthouse
1. Beachy Head
TV 59 NE 12/45 27.5.49.
Built by Stevenson in 1831 of Aberdeen granite. Disused as a lighthouse since
the modern 1 was built below the cliff in 1902. A house was built onto the
North side of the lighthouse before the last war and used as an artillery
target when the house was reduced to ruins, but the lighthouse to the South
is still more or less intact except for the top storey above the platform which
actually housed the lantern.
