In 1759, Smeaton’s Tower began service as a warning for sailors to avoid the perilous Eddystone Rocks. Just 24 candles stood between the jagged rocks beneath the icy Atlantic and safe passage to Plymouth, or the English Channel and beyond. To the sailors, those candles atop that lonely lighthouse was like a guiding light from heaven above. After more than a century of service, Smeaton’s retired to a less exposed home with a pleasant view on Plymouth Hoe. Here, admiring landlubbers can scale her 93 steps and wonder at this marvellous feat of engineering, originally constructed over 250 years ago - 14 miles out at sea.
