WC 4.5.20

Look at the lighthouses of Burnham. Discuss what they are and what they are/were used for. Look at the dates they were in use and when they were replaced. Ask a grownup to help you read the information on this site about the lighthouses: https://www.burnham-on-sea.com/history/lighthouses-in-burnham/

 

Can you match the statements with the correct pictures?

 

Burnham’s ‘Lighthouse on legs’ was built because the lighthouse which was already in use had a vantage point that was too low. (This means that it was not high enough to get a good view of the sea).

The lighthouse is painted white with a red stripe.

 

This light house has always been known locally as ‘the Round Tower’.

The lighthouse used to be 4 storeys tall but it was made smaller so that it was not confused with the Burnham High Lighthouse.

 

Many tourists climbed the stairs of this lighthouse to see views of South Wales and North Devon.

This lighthouse hasn’t been a working lighthouse since 1993 and is somebody’s home.
