We live in the LSA hut below Bardsey Lighthouse. The lighthouse was built by Trinity House in 1821. They splashed out £5470 12s 6d on the buildings and £2950 16s 7d for the lantern on top. 

The lantern on top is constantly moving on a bed of mercury. If it stopped it would probably start a fire (c) Richard Brown

The light character is five white flashes every 15 seconds. The light is 39m above the sea so it can be seen up to 26 nautical miles away.
