• Description

    An account of the restoration of the old Hodbarrow Point lighthouse, including a series of photographs from 2003. "...In April 2003 the local BBC news reported that the 100 years old lighthouse, which had fallen into disrepair, was to receive £ 20,000 of Heritage Lottery Fund money to restore it to its former glory. After 6 years of waiting, the restoration project run by the Haverigg Lighthouse Committee with the support of Haverigg Primary School was now started....The offical opening took place on 15th July 2004 with a procession by parents and pupils from Haverigg Primary School all dressed in period costumes...."
