Eigeroy Lighthouse

Eigerøy1854. Active; focal plane 46 m (151 ft); three white flashes every 30 s. 33 m (108 ft) round cast iron tower with lantern and gallery, attached to a 2-story service building. 1st order Fresnel lens in use. Lighthouse painted red with one white horizontal band. Falk Lademann’s photo is at the top of this page, Wikimedia has Roar Johansen’s photo, Anke and Jens have several good photos, S. Lommatzsch has a 2008 closeup, Trabas has posted a view from the sea by Ronald Wöhrn, and Bing has asatellite view. This was Norway’s first cast iron lighthouse, and its success encouraged the building of many more on the Norwegian coastline. Automated in 1989, the lighthouse remains under the control of the Kystverket, which offers limited tours. Located on the southwestern tip of Eigerøy, about 12 km (7.5 mi) west of Egersund. Accessible by road. Site open, tower open for climbing on Sundays in July. ARLHS NOR-010; NF-0945; Admiralty B3184; NGA 1960. -The Lighthouse Directory
