Footnotes

  • There has been a light on the tip of Portland Bill in Dorset since 1716, when the Town of Weymouth and Trinity House petitioned the Crown for a lease. Two inefficient lights were built, but these were replaced with a new light in 1789. This remained until 1869, when a new high and low light were constructed. The current lighthouse dates from the beginning of the 20th century.

Saleroom notices

  • Please note. The lighthouse depicted is Smeaton's lighthouse on the Eddystone, not Portland as described in the catalogue.
