PORTLAND BILL LIGHTHOUSE

Carrying on the lighthouse theme this week, here is a little pic of the famous lighthouse on the Isle of Portland that I've just this minute finished...



This beauty was built in 1905 and first shone on 11th January 1906. Standing at the very tip of Portland, it faces some of this country's maddest weather. It is one of the featured areas of the iconic Shipping Forecast on BBC radio.

It even had a kids TV series about it in the 1980s!
