Skerries Pierhead Light
There is a very dramatic lighthouse on an island off the coast of Anglesey in Wales called the Skerries Light. This is not it.
Can't seem to find out when this dowdy little chap was built but a petition to extend the pier at Skerries was ongoing for more than 100 years until work finally commenced in the 1960s, so I would assume that Prince Charming here dates from that time, though there was probably a light of some sort on the end of the shorter pier beforehand. Old photographs should tell us, if I could only find one!
