Everything you wanted to know about lighthouses...
Boston Light (1716)
Okay, not quite everything but there is a LOT of information on lighthouses on this site.
My thanks to Alex from Maine for putting me onto it (and she certainly has some stunning lighthouses in that part of the world). It is a list of sources for lighthouse information and you could spend hours just browsing all the information on Fresnel lights and ancient lighthouses and lighthouse terminology. Naturally, being a U.S. site, the emphasis is on North American lights but there is plenty in there for the Irish lighthouse enthusiast too. I have put a link on the sidebar.
Of course, if it told you everything you needed to know about lighthouses, it would make this blog redundant!
