The lighthouse is made of local "Blue Lias" Stone and was quarried from the cliffs that it stands on.

This lighthouse was constructed after the loss of "The Frolic" a shipwrecked here in 1831 with the loss of 78 lives.

On top of one of the lighthouse buildings, there is a great "Foghorn".

There are two towers. The tall lighthouse and a smaller tower. Both initially gave out light.

It was the last manned lighthouse in Wales and was de-manned just a month before the last Uk lighthouse.
