Flamborough Head Lighthouse

Flamborough Head Lighthouse

Flamborough Head Lighthouse was established on 1st December 1806, designed by Samuel Wyatt.

A tower first marked the dangerous headland northeast of Bridlington in 1669. This tower, built by Sir John Clayton, was never lit.

It had a sector of red glass marking dangerous waters. This system was later widely adopted at other lighthouses.

Flamborough Lighthouse was automated in 1996.
