The metal white painted lighthouse, was built by Trinity House to guide shipping in the Severn Estuary as it made its way in and out of Bristol Harbour. Before it was decommissioned on 27 September 2010 the lens, a 4th Order 250 mm biform lens, flashed twice every ten seconds.
In October 2011, after it was no longer needed for navigational purposes, it was sold to a trust for preservation at a cost of £1.
