As with yesterdays picture this was taken in the same time period, late 70s/early 80s, but I tried to make a fairly mundane subject a bit more interesting photographing it this way. Happisburgh Lighthouse is the oldest working light in East Anglia, and the only independently run lighthouse in Great Britain. Built in 1790, originally one of a pair - the tower is 85ft tall and the lantern is 134ft above sea level. Today the lighthouse is painted white with three red bands, and has been saved as a working light by the local community, it is maintained and operated entirely by voluntary contributions.
