Farne Lighthouse was built on the Farne Islands in 1811 to the design of Daniel Alexander, it is a circular white tower with lighthouse keepers' cottages to the rear. It was converted to solar powered operation in 1996.
The tower is 13 m (43 ft) tall with a range for the white light of 10 nautical miles (19 km; 12 mi) and the Red 7 nmi (13 km; 8.1 mi).
The lighthouse is now automatic and has no resident keepers, although in former years it did. The lighthouse is now maintained by Trinity House via their local lighthouse attendant, George Shiel, who also provides guided tours inside the lighthouse.
