Penmon Lighthouse

Penmon Lighthouse - England & Wales
This is an beautiful if not eerie atmospheric location at the eastern tip of Anglesey. The silence is broken every 30 sec by the toll of a bell warning ships of there fate in foggy conditions. The lighthouse was built following a major loss of life, on 17 August 1831, when an old steamer, 'The Rothsay Castle', ran aground and broke up on or near Puffin Island taking the lives of 117 passengers and crew with it.
