Gribbin Daymark

Located at Gribbin Head in Cornwall is the 84ft square beacon tower known as Gribbin Daymark. Built in 1832 to help navigate vessels into the harbor at Fowey and around St.Austell bay. It has never been lit and operates solely as a visual marker, its striking red and white paint is visible from land and sea for miles.
