Photographer's Note

La'Corbiere Lighthouse >>> One of the most photographed buildings in Jersey is the lighthouse at La Corbiere- meaning 'gathering place of the crows- on the south west coast of Jersey. Completed in 1873, the lighthouse was the first in the British Isles to be made of concrete rather than the traditional stone. It stands 135ft above mean sea level and the light- originally lit by paraffin oil- can be seen from up to 18 miles away. On a clear day it is one of the first landmarks to be sighted by anyone travelling on the ferry from the neighbouring island of Guernsey.
