Foreland Lighthouse - This distinctive landmark
was built in 1843 high over the White Cliffs. The lighthouse
was used by Marconi just over 100 years ago for early
radio experiments. From here Marconi made the worlds
first ship to shore and subsequently the first international
radio transmission. The tour takes about thirty minutes
and you will learn the history of the lighthouse and
everyone who has been associated with it. A good idea
is to combine this with a visit to the nearby Gateway
to the White Cliffs.
