Portishead Point lighthouse, which is more commonly known as Battery Point lighthouse, in Portishead, Somerset, England was built in 1931.
A two tonne fog bell, cast by Gillett & Johnston of Croydon, which used to hang on the structure was removed in 1998. Following public campaigning for restoration the bell was acquired by Portishead Town Council and returned to the town in 2012. It will be installed in Wyndham Way close to the High Street.
