C'mon Charles, just one step at a time as they say. :-P

I do not remember ever seeing a lighthouse this short before!! Amazing! I do see it can do the job of a taller lighthouse, but why build it taller if it really is not necessary!

They’re built higher due to the horizon. The higher they are the further away they could be seen.

Exactly correct. Height of the light depends on the intent of the light (for example for use in a closed-in bay or limited waterway. They wouldn't want a real high light so as not to confuse mariners who may see it from much farther away and confuse it with a different light).

We have a lighthouse on Cape Canaveral. The original light was 70 ft high, but by the time mariners got in close enough to see it, they were in dangerous (shallow) shoals, and numerous ships struck ground. After only a few years, they replaced the light with one 188 ft high. This could be seen from much farther away, and allowed sailors to naviage farther out, avoiding the shallow shoals.

The one I talked about 3 posts up (4 with my post) , why was that one built so low? Any guesses??

Not familiar. I just came to understand that the height had very specific purposes . . .

The Kallo lighthouse in the Finnish west coast (Pori).
This one is rather a small one. The first lighthouse constructions here were built in 1884.

Hi Charles,

The Castle Hill lighthouse is short and stocky but not quite as short as the photo above seems to indicate. Here is a photo of it from a different angle.
