It’s International Lighthouse Heritage Weekend (ILHW) 19 – 120 August, and the point of this weekend is to raise the profile of lighthouses, light vessels and other navigational aids, promoting our maritime heritage.
 

One way you can get involved (if you’re not able to make it to your nearest lighthouse) is to brush up on your lighthouse knowledge.

We’ve compiled some blogs and collated them here for easy access:
