This lighthouse structure is a rather unusual. The only enclosed parts are the lantern house at the top and the central shaft which houses the spiral staircase. According to the plaque on the shaft it's 130 feet above sea level and the light is visible 20 miles. This iron light replaced a stone lighthouse in 1896.
