Orfordness Lighthouse & Its Nemesis
Orfordness Lighthouse & Its Nemesis

There has been a light on Orfordness since 1637. Unfortunately while protecting mariners on the North Sea, like its nine predecessors it was unable to protect itself; firstly from the advance of technology with global positioning satellites making it redundant in 2013 and secondly coastal erosion eating away at its foundations resulting in its demolition in 2020.
