Anvil Point Lighthouse
Swanage, Dorset, UK
Built from local stone, Anvil Point Lighthouse was completed in 1881 and opened by Neville Chamberlain's father, then Minister of Transport.
The light is positioned to give a waypoint for vessels on passage along the English Channel coast. To the west it gives a clear line from Portland Bill and to the east guides vessels away from the Christchurch Ledge and leads them into the Solent.
Lighthouse has a visitor centre.
