The landmark was built in 1830 and is 30 metres tall.

In the 1950s, the lighthouse became one of the first in England to be automated.

After it was deactivated in the 1990s, it was converted into a three-bedroom home with eight floors and one circular room on each tier with views of up to 22 miles on a clear day across the Bristol Channel.

It has maintained many original features, including a private golden gravel driveway.
