Kjeungskjaer Lighthouse

Kjeungskjær1880. Active; focal plane 17 m (56 ft); white, red or green light depending on direction, occulting once every 6 s. 20 m (66 ft) octagonal cylindrical stone tower with lantern and gallery, incorporating keeper’s quarters. Entire lighthouse painted red. The original Fresnel lens continues in use. Steve Cadman’s photo is at right, Claußen has a photo, Bob Richardson has a 2008photo, the Fyr-i-Fyr wiki site has a page with a Kystverket aerial photo, Bash has a 2010 photo, Marinas.com has fine aerial photos, and Google has a satellite view. This integral design is very unusual for a Norwegian lighthouse. Located on a very small skerry about 3 km (2 mi) west of Uthaug. Accessible only by boat, but there should be an excellent view from the Breidablikkveien, the coastal road extending westward from Uthaug. Site open, tower closed. ARLHS NOR-137; NF-4729; Admiralty L1560; NGA 8200. -The Lighthouse Directory
