Additional Details:
St. Catherine's Lighthouse is situated in a prominent position on the most southern point of the Isle of Wight. It was erected in 1840, stands 204 feet above sea-level, and possesses the most powerful light in the world - 6,000,000 candle-power. Since its erection, wrecks, which were formerly a frequent occurrence on this dangerous coast, have happily been rare.
