Nice little museum and lighthouse with a story to tell. Erosion of the shore threatened topple the tower into the sea. Through an extraordinary engineering feat it was moved back to safety.

This is a nice lighthouse that you can climb to the top. Too many lighthouses have been closed to the public! This lighthouse had to be moved in 1996 due to erosion. Once you are at the top, the view is fantastic!
