A visit to North Foreland Lighthouse

Today I successfully ticked off another Trinity House lighthouse from my list by visiting North Foreland Lighthouse in Kent. The trip involved taking a two hour train from Bromley South to Broadstairs which is one stop passed Margate.  Broadstairs is linked to several Charles Dicken’s novels and was a favourite haunt of the author. The recently painted lighthouse was the last lighthouse to be automated (in 1998) and today the lighthouse keepers cottages are rented out as holiday homes. I will need to return to get some better photographs as the conditions were unfavourable for photography.
