We were recently fortunate enough to spend a few days at the Old Higher Lighthouse mentioned in the previous post. It was here that Marie Stopes entertained various eminent visitors including Thomas Hardy, George Bernard Shaw and H G Wells.
The original lantern has been converted into an observatory with spectacular 360 degree views. Whilst enjoying the comfort afforded by the protection of the windows, the scene outside is constantly changing. The sunsets are especially impressive and sometimes quite dramatic.
