Belle Tout Lighthouse at Beach Head

An English landmark saved from a 90 metre fall.

Built in 1834 it was situated some forty meters away from the edge, but now, one more rock fall and the lighthouse would be a heap of rubble on the beach below. Located in Beachy Head, East Sussex, the Belle Tout Lighthouse was moved 56 feet in 1999 as a retreating coastline threatened its existence. The 850-ton landmark was moved using hydraulic jacks that pushed the lighthouse along four beams that were lubricated with grease.

Lemon Groundwork Solutions supplied over 50 tonnes of reinforcing bar to construct the new base.
