I've just been reading a very interesting little book about lighthouses. We all see them from a distance, but what about their history, when was a particular lighthouse built, how was it built and why?
Well this book tells you all.
It is called (would you believe) 'Lighthouses' and was written by Lynn F Pearson. It is published by Shire books.
Take a look at their maritime section. They have some real gems. For example the history of anchors.
Great reading for the winter months.
