Sussex / Beachy Head / Belle Tout Lighthouse
ARLHS ENG-006


      

Built in 1832 on the Seven Sisters Cliffs.
Inactive since 1899, due to bad visibility in fog. Same time the Beachy Head lighthouse was built.
As the sea took part of the rocks, Belle Tout Lighthouse was relocated 15 meters land in.
Now it's a bed & breakfast accomodation.
