DescriptionWhen the lighthouse was first built, a single horn of a clay and iron pipe design, facing straight out to sea, was provided. This was replaced by a pair of twin horns to the same design, angled to spread the noise up and down the coast. Every 30 seconds the horns produced a 5 second blast in poor weather up until 1988, when Souter Lighthouse was then decommissioned by Trinity House. The foghorns remain in working order and are sounded on special occasions throughout the year. Most notably during the monthly Engine Room Day, which is held at the lighthouse during summer months.
