View Details

Burnham’s ‘lighthouse on legs’ was built in 1832 to complement a separate pillar lighthouse which was found to have too low a vantage point to be sighted by all vessels in the channel

The iconic Low Lighthouse is the last of three active lighthouses in Burnham-on-Sea.

The lighthouse is painted white with a single vertical red stripe on its front face and is 9m tall with a conical roof and mounted on 9 timber pilings.

It remains an active aid to navigation to this day and is visited by many thousands of walkers every year who marvel at the structure.
