Lighthouse replica at Warea

When the 160-year-old light was removed from the Cape Egmont Lighthouse, to be replaced with a modern rotating beacon, Len Pentelow set about raising money to build a replica lighthouse for the special Fresnel prismatic light. This replica lighthouse is now a museum. Click here for my previous post about the museum.

Gorgeous view along the walkway to the lighthouse! Great idea to at least preserve the memory of the old lighthouse!
