This is an authoritative and well researched account of the extraordinary achievement of construction of lighthouses on the savage Eddystone Rocks. This book is a salute to the heroes who struggled to put a lighthouse on the most notorious maritime blackspot of its day- a struggle illuminated by ten years of research, excerpts from the lighthouse builder’s diaries and letters, some previously unpublished pictures and a passion for the subject which shines through Mike Palmer’s writing.
Film maker and author Mike Palmer has been attracted to the sea and in particular to the study of pharology. Indeed with the help of Trinity House he has visited many rock lighthouses.
