This fascinating and evocative book lavishly illustrated with historical photographs from The Francis Frith Collection not only describes Britain's lighthouses but also offers insights into the working practices and daily lives of the lighthouse keepers - fiercely independent men, who contended not only with storms and foul weather but with constant loneliness caused by separation from their families. The authors recount thrilling tales of shipwrecks and rescues, and the exploits of pirates, smugglers and wreckers. These fascinating photographs are a testament to the continuous efforts of courageous men down the years to 'keep the light lit', and so preserve the lives of mariners around Britain's shores.

" I ordered a book with a personalised touch (from my youngest kids to their grandma). Having the option to personalise is one of the reasons I bought it. It was promptly delivered, no fuss, no delays. An absolutely beautiful pictorial historical account of my Mum's home town, which I am sure she will be delighted with.

Thank you very much Francis Frith."
