Godrevy Lighthouse is lit for the first time
James Walker designed the station, and two keepers were originally appointed to the lighthouse to maintain the two lights, one a bright flashing white every ten seconds, and the other a fixed red, which marked the Stones Rocks. Their range was 17 and 15 miles respectively.
Trinity House erected the lighthouse after the iron screw steamer Nile was wrecked with the loss of all passengers and crew on 30 November 1854.
