Stavernsodden Lighthouse

Stavernsodden Lighthouse
Stavernsodden Lighthouse in Vestfold is a cultural property of great national value. It was established in 1855, but in the beginning it consisted only of a small lighthouse and the guardroom. The current lighthouse building was erected in 1874.
The light is 43 meters over sea level and has a range are fifteen nautical miles. Active; focal plane 44 m (144 ft); white, red or green light depending on direction, osculating three times every 10 s. 7 m (23 ft) square shingle-covered tower with lantern and gallery. Tower painted white, lantern red. The light tower adjoins one corner of a 1-1/2 story keeper's house; the station also includes an assistant keeper's house, engine house, boathouse, and other structures.

The lighthouse was automated in 1984, and was until 2008 rented out as holiday accommodation for employees of the Norwegian Meteorological Institute.

The listing of Stavernsodden lighthouse is part of efforts to secure a number of lighthouses that can best reflect Norwegian lighthouse history. The listing of 1997 applies to all buildings' exteriors, floor plan and room structure, building parts and some details in the interior.
