'Light Houses of the East Coast' by Robin Jones

$article->leadphoto->description

A beautifully illustrated book, delving into the fascinating histories of the lighthouses of east coast.


The East coast is famed for its beauty; but it is equally a treachourous environment that has endangered ships plying their trade from the north east to London. As a result, many developments in lighthouse history were made here.

Robin Jones' new book is arranged in short chapters, each one dedicated to a lighthouse on the East Anglian and Lincolnshire coastlines. The fascinating histories cover a multitude of topics; including World War Two, UFOs, and eighteenth-century sex orgies.


Beautifully illustrated with large glossy photos, this book offers a definitive guide to lighthouses, from Trent Falls on the Humber, to the Thames Estuary and London's East End.

Note in particular the chapters on Suffolk's very own beloved lighthouses in Lowestoft, Parkefield and Kessingland, Southwold, Orford Ness and Landguard Point.


Take it to the sites, or enjoy it from the comfort of your armchair!


Lighthouses of the East Coast is available from local stockists for £16.99, or from Halsgrove Direct.
