Eddystone Lighthouse- Rame Head, England...This is actually the fourth lighthouse to be built on this site in the past 300 years. One burnt down, one was washed away in a storm and the third was deemed structurally unsound and hauled away. The current lighthouse has been in use since 1882. It’s appeared in popular folk songs and has been mentioned in many works of literature, including Moby Dick.
