History

The lighthouse was erected in 1877 to mark the N end of Cardigan Bay. The keepers accommodation is contemporary with it. It is now disused.

Exterior

Contemporary with the tower, and laid out in relation to it. Smooth render over stone or brick, with flat roof, unmoulded cornice and blocking course. Symmetrically laid out, with central entrance facing W (and blocked rear entrance). W elevation has central square porch with plain cornice and blocking course, and doorways in either side. 2 flanking windows to either side are 8-pane sashes (some now boarded over); similar 3-window return elevations. The building is built into the slope, and the rear elevation is partly below ground level, accessed by a narrow walkway: blocked central entrance, and an asymmetrical disposition of openings, with outer doorway and flanking window to the right, outer and central doors in left, with flanking windows.
