Nash Point Lighthouse is an 19th century, grade 2 listed, historic building. It was the last manned lighthouse in Wales, de-manned in August 1998 .

The Lighthouse’s operation is monitored by Trinity House’s Operation & Planning Control Centre at Harwich, Essex, by telemetry and maintained by their engineers there and at the West Coast Division at Swansea and also by the attendant .

The station was built between 1831 -1832 using “Blue Lias” stone quarried from the beach below the station which was then winched up the cliff and dressed on site by very skilled masons and many labourers.

The foundations for both the low (west) tower and the high (east tower) were laid in the week before 1st October 1831 and the whole station was completed and exhibited its light for the first time on 1st September 1832., just 11 months after work commenced .

It is said that the Lighthouse was built due to the loss of a ship called “The Frolic” which was wrecked on the Nash Sands in March 1831 with the loss of about 78 lives . This incident may have been the reason that construction took place so soon and was completed so quickly.
It is on the Coastal path Of Wales ., on the Heritage Coast.
Glamorgan , South Wales .
