Hook Lighthouse and Heritage Centre

Interesting
This 25m-high lighthouse at the tip of a peninsula (115 steps to the top) was built in the 13C and stands on the spot of a fire that has been kept going since the 5C to guide boats around. Below, the foaming waves crash onto the black schist rocks that are battered by violent winds.
