Following the destruction of the first lighthouse, a Captain Lovett

Post by jancancook on Wed Mar 30, 2011 7:39 am

Following the destruction of the first lighthouse, a Captain Lovett acquired the lease of the rock, and by Act of Parliament was allowed to charge passing ships a toll of one penny per ton. He commissioned John Rudyard (or Rudyerd) to design the new lighthouse, built as a conical wooden structure around a core of brick and concrete. A temporary light was first shown from it in 1708[5] and the work was completed in 1709. This proved more durable, surviving nearly fifty years.[2]
