Lighthouse, Coquet Island


The lighthouse on Coquet Island in Northumberland was built in 1841 by Trinity House. The lighthouse complex includes a lighthouse-keeper's cottage which was built into the ruins of a medieval monestary on the island.[1]. William Darling, the elder brother of Grace Darling, was first lighthouse-keeper on the island. The lighthouse is now automated, with no resident keeper. though RSPB wardens are resident on the island for part of the year. The lighthouse and its associated buildings are Grade II* listed.
