Exploring the most Picturesque & Historic parts of England
Flamborough Headland has always been a dangerous place for shipping and there was a lighthouse long before the present one was built . The octagonal chalk tower is one of the oldest surviving lighthouses in England . It was built in 1669 by Sir John Clayton , who was given permission to build a number of lighthouses around the country by King Charles II . The 24 metre tower was designed to have brushwood or coal fire burning on the top .
