Well... Heres some of my favorite pictures!
Well, I just passed my training and am now on to a better job.
Good bye to the customer service industry. Whilst it's taught me some valuable life lessons and I truly do appreciate every one of them, I'm glad to be out of my previous employment.

I now work at the airport as a ramp agent. Interesting stuff indeed!

I asked around about that weird bunker object, and someone told me that it belongs to the remains of an old army bunker built under the hill behind the harbour. Unfortunately it's privately owned, so access is impossible. Its one of several army bunkers built on the Eastern Bank, but I have no clue as to where these are located. The entrance I photographed has been locked by the owner, and the gated section is in use by the port to store assorted goods, with permission of the owner of course.

I don't know how good your knowledge is on air-raid shelters or bunkers, but I hope you can shed some light on this. This structure is located on the eastern side of our harbour. I was told that it was not an air-raid shelter, so what could it possibly be? the-kiwi-gremlin.deviantart.co…

Do you perhaps know whether the Spurn Point Lighthouse has opened yet? I heard it was soon to be opened.

Makes me sad to think that lighthouses will eventually die out as navigation aids.

Some at least. Not by any means the majority though.

Do you think; that if lighthouses are to ever be completely phased out in the future; will their lights continue to be lit decoratively?

Its a pity its light doesn't work anymore. Then again; the Skye Bridge made the light redundant.

Perhaps. It's a very long way from where I live - if I left my house at 5am, it'd probably be night by the time I'd arrive there... and that's in a modern car, let alone my Morris Minor, so unless I'm passing its unlikely to be one I visit much. No plans on visiting it properly just yet, but I reckon I will some day.

So it is open. I was under the impression that tours of it weren't conducted; according to one site; they said that there was no access to the tower. Probably old or false information. Do you plan on visiting it one day?

Eilan Ban Lighthouse - as far as I know - has always been open. You just need to go to a visitor centre nearby (Not sure exactly where) and ask for the key to the lighthouse tower.
I've never had the time to do this however, as we've always been going past on the way to get the ferry from skye to the western isles, so we've only ever made quick stops at 
Eilan Ban.

Sorry if I am being a pain; but its appears that the Eilan Ban Lighthouse in Skye is now open to the public as part of a guided tour; so the next time you go to Scotland, and you're in that area; you might want to check it out.

I read on the Lighthouse Directory that 2016 might be the last year that the Orfordness Lighthouse will be seen upright. With wild storms forecast for the area; and with the sea right at the doorstep of the lighthouse at the moment; this year could be its final year.

Yes it was being decommissioned at the time of your filming. The boilers were laid flat on the ground in preparation for transportation to either Sweden or Denmark, not sure; for recycling. I have had a sudden liking for range lights, I don't know why, which is also why I watched the video again: I mean range lights aren't really your classic lighthouse; even if they possess a lantern room.

Yes, it is.
If I remember correctly, it was being decommissioned around the time that I filmed there.

I went through your video of the Berkeley Pill Range Lights again; and those two square buildings in the background; is that perhaps the Berkeley Nuclear Power Station?

The Hood Point Lighthouse is finally getting the love she deserves; after nearly more than a year of no progress. luke-the-spook.deviantart.com/…
