[Wilson, H] :First lighthouse at Pencarrow Head, built about 1852. From sketch owned by Mr H Baillie, City Librarian 30 October 1923
Reference Number: A-032-012
A small building resembling a house rather than a conventional lighthouse. It has a hexagonal structure attached to one of two rooms, and presumably the light shone out of the bay windows on five sides of the hexagon. The drawing appears to be a later reconstruction. The walls are of wood and the roof probably of shingles.
