About Godrevy Lighthouse

Godrevy Lighthouse was built by Trinity House in 1859 marking a dangerous reef off St. Ives called the Stones; the light was moved to an adjacent steel structure in 2012. Standing approximately 300 meters off Godrevy Head, it marks the Stones reef, which has been a hazard to shipping for centuries.
