Lot Essay

John Ruskin described the area around the Land's End as 'an entire disorder of the surges..'. The headland is encircled by rocks on which countless ships have been lost in heavy seas or during poor visibility. Among the aids to shipping is the Longships Lighthouse situated one mile out to the west of Land's End. The present lighthouse on this site was built in 1875.
