Light house exhibition

Poster Exhibition on Baltic Sea Lighthouses

Lighthouses  are some of the oldest aids to navigation and have marked the main highways along our coasts for centuries. Throughout their history they have benefited from the development of new technology and increasingly automated equipment. Ironically these same advantages have gradually eroded the need for manned lighthouses. Today the majority of lights world-wide are automatically operated and no longer require personnel. Many others have been decommissioned from service.

Continual exposure to the harsh maritime environment and no regular maintenance means that these buildings rapidly deteriorate.
It is this threat which many Baltic Lights now face.
