Flamborough Head Lighthouse Activation By Andrew 26RU/ENG-042

Flamborough Head Lighthouse

 Flamborough Head (/ˈflæmbərə/ or /-brə/) is a promontory, 8 miles (13 km) long on the Yorkshire coast of England, between the Filey and Bridlington bays of the North Sea. It is a chalk headland, with sheer white cliffs. The cliff top has two standing lighthouse towers, the oldest dating from 1669 and Flamborough Head Lighthouse built in 1806. The older lighthouse was designated a Grade II* listed building by English Heritage in 1952.[1] The cliffs provide nesting sites for many thousands of seabirds, and are of international significance for their geology.
