Built on a craggy offshore rock in 1859, Godrevy is one of Britain’s best loved lighthouses. Its beam reaches out over St Ives Bay, Cornwall, warning ships of a treacherous reef. It has figured in paintings by the artists based in St Ives since the 1880s and was the inspiration for Virginia Woolf’s 'To The Lighthouse', using memories from her childhood holidays in the area.

Taken in 2010-14, the photographs place the lighthouse in the context of its landscape and seascape, its geology and weathers.

The introductory essay by Jessica Mann and Charles Thomas, who have been involved with Godrevy for over half a century, describes the lighthouse's history and its place in literature and art.
