Portland Bill Lighthouse

There are three lighthouse at Portland Bill; the Old High and Old Low Lighthouses were discontinued when the current tower came into use in 1906.

The first order optic was removed from the lantern at the end of 2019, when it was replaced by an LED optic. The original lens is now on display at the base of the tower, as part of the visitor centre.
