Lighthouse identification / Chumpon, Southern Thailand
February 18, 2023, 12:54:29 AM
Five years ago I have been first time in Chumpon, Southern Thailand with a large harbour !
I have made severel pics and uploaded to World of Lighthouses.Alex Trabas wrote me at this time, I have missed the Admiralty F2924.2 and F2924.3.
So I returned recently again to Chumpon to make pics from the missed lights.
Now Alex Trabas revised all geographical positions. Now I had to correct all my pictures as well.I hope everything is correct now.
Lighthouse Directory from Russ Rowlett is very useful for all of us lighthouse lovers. But often I see great differences for height of the tower and focal plane elevation from Open Sea Map.
For instance: Roscoff ! A1812.1 Russ: 24 and 24, Open Sea : 15 and 24 (seems realistic )
Or the beacons in sea: A1818, Russ :20 and 14, Open Sea : 8 and 14 (seems realistic ) and so on...
Good question! Google Maps shows a marine conservation association in front of the lighthouse.  I couldn't find an email to contact ! :(

In Google Maps the Rear und Front lighthouses in Barfleur are named as Le Phare de la Bretonne and Phare du Cracko ! Where do the names come from?

I know the vicinity of Marseille well. Maybe this tower has never been a lighthouse ?

According to ibiblio the lighthouse is repainted in 2011 in its historic red!

Thank you for posting!
Do you know how I drive to the lighthouses ? I am using ! I am using the app ! I download KML datas in ! So all lights are in my mobile !
One disadvantage: Here are only the active lights ! Inactive lighthouses I fix in Google maps.
See the screenshot of my mobile with the lights of Denmark / Germany!
I do not believe everytime! I will inquire !
Is it the only movable Range Rear in the world?  It can be moved laterally according to the requirements of the fairway. I have never seen before!
A video for all lighthouse friends!
