Round Island Lighthouse
Round Island, Cornwall, UK
Round Island, the most northerly outpost of the Scillies is a 40m mass of granite, the top forming a platform on which Trinity House built a lighthouse and dwellings in 1887 under conditions of extreme difficulty. The sheer rock face made the unloading of building materials almost impossible.
Today the only access, apart from by helicopter, is by a flight of steps out into the solid rock.
