Point Lynas Lighthouse, Llaneilian, Holy Island, Anglesey, Wales

The Point Lynas Lighthouse sits on a high bluff near the village of Llaneilian on Holy Island in Anglesey, North Wales. The sight was established in 1779 with the current lighthouse being built around 1835. As one can see, the lighthouse is unusual as the light is at the base and not in a tower. It was originally build by Mersey Docks and Harbour Board as one of several lights guiding ships into the Mersey River which is north of the area. The lighthouse is advertized as a bed and breakfast, however when I visited and photographed it in March 2013 signs indicated that it and two adjacent houses were for sale.
