On This Day in Trinity House History – 26 August

1732

The Elder Brethren order a tidy up of English lighthouses and buoys

Trinity House Board Minute:

“Ordered, that a letter be written to our lightkeepers and buoy keepers to keep their lights carefully and buoys clean and in their proper places against his Majesty’s arrival from Holland.”

Anticipating George II‘s arrival back in English waters, the Elder Brethren issue a reminder to all lighthouse keepers and buoy attendants to keep everything in good order.
