Smeatons Tower

Smeatons Tower

Smeatons Tower was the third of four Eddystone lighthouses originally sited 14 miles West of Plymouth. And was in use from 1759 to 1882. As technology moved on it was too small contain modern machinery so it was dismantled and rebuilt on a new granite base on Plymouth Hoe and opened in September 1884. Plymouth is Englands Ocean City. Situated on Englands South coast on the east bank of the River Tamar and the mouth of the River Plym. It has a history that goes back beyond Elizabethan times as an important sea port. It has been home to many historic people including Sir Francis Drake who allegedly completed a game of bowls after being told that the Spanish Armada was on its way. It is also famous for the Pilgrim Fathers setting sail for the new world on the Mayflower. It has so much history that it would take volumes to describe its past and current day. Other than to say it is still a thriving naval port with old and new alongside each other.
