Lighthouse Challenge 24 June 2017

Please read this carefully, as it is here to ensure that your walk around the lighthouse is not only enjoyable, but safe.

The Route

The start will be at the check-in point, just up the lane from the kiosk. The first part is over the Downs to Cow Gap which will take around 15 – 20 minutes, and from there you will be able to go down to the beach. The steps down to the beach are a bit steep and narrow which can cause a little bit of congestion, so please be patient! Once on the beach, turn right and head for the lighthouse which will take around 50 – 55 minutes to reach.

The Lighthouse

When you get to the lighthouse, you will be able to walk round it and achieve your objective. Some people are tempted to walk up to the platform leading to the door of the lighthouse, but we would strongly advise against doing this, as steps to the platform are narrow and extremely slippery, so you do so very much at your own risk.

There will be helpers at the lighthouse to take a note of your wrist band, so please find one and give your details; this is necessary for both safety and as a confirmation that you have rounded the lighthouse and are eligible for your certificate of achievement.


Obviously paramount, so please help us to help you and note:-
