Lighthouse is frequently used as a symbol in religion especially in Christianity, so i would say your assumption is quite valid! Even now if you google something lighthouse and church you will see many references.   
I made some research and I suspect this is not a full copy of real lighthouse or model which is not exactly scalable. Here are some considerations:
  • Lantern size comparing to the whole structure height indicates that this is relatively minor light
  • At the same time squares which seems should be windows are too close to each other for such structure
  • Lantern is square and have a think frames which are usually to be avoided as could give a dark sectors in the light operation
The positions of windows remind number of offshore lighthouses:

As for general shape it looks like Aberdeen range lighthouses

So maybe this model is kind of combination of both as artist seen this.
Hi! I would assume this is something from UK, but any additional details available? I.e. origin of the model, region / country?

I've seen one in Korea but it literally around the country. You can take a special booklet and in each lighthouse they will put a special stamp into it!
Cool, thanks for advice!
I don't remember something similar
This is likely old view of H2416.1. According to LH directory it was replaced by sceletal tower in 2011
I didn't find it, maybe removed?
