Anstruther lighthouse.  HFF everyone.

Anstruther lighthouse. HFF everyone. 

The Chalmers Lighthouse was built in 1880 at the harbour entrance, to commemorate Dr Thomas Chalmers, a mathematician and professor of theology.
The octagonal Lighthouse seen today was built to mark the end of the breakwater and stands 9 metres high. Most of the tower is painted white, whilst the service room below the unusually small lantern is painted black. A light is no longer shown from the tower, although it still operates a nautophone fog signal, housed in one of the window holes around the top of the tower, and a decorative white light is still shown from it's lantern.
A new light, seen in the photo, was established in front of the Lighthouse, consisting of a plain unpainted metal pole with two LED units.

That is a lovely old lighthouse...........and it's good to see it being kept in such good condition, even though it's not in full use.

Lovely light in both respects Amelia. Many a year since I was in Anstruther, although I do have a niece that lives in the town. Thanks for the interesting notes.

Best wishes, Doug
