Lighthouse

This is the fourth Dungeness Lighthouse. The first three fell victim to increasing shingle banks which meant the sea receding and their lights not being visible to sailors. This one was in situ from 1904 until the 1950s, when someone decided to put Dungeness power station between it and the sea.
