Is a major Aid to Navigation, owned and operated by the Corporation of Trinity House. It has been serving seafarers since its completion in 1832 following the loss of the ship “Frolic”, with many casualties, on the Nash Sandbanks. It was the last Lighthouse in Wales to be manned. It is now automatically operated and monitored by Trinity House's Control Centre at Harwich and is maintained by engineers from Trinity House West Coast Division, at Swansea, and by the local attendant, Chris Williams, an ex Lighthouse Keeper who served at this lighthouse. It is the only working Lighthouse within 200 miles to be open to the public and was the first (and is the only) working lighthouse, in the British Isles, licensed as premises for weddings and civil partnerships ceremonies.
