Bishop Rock Lighthouse
bishop_rock_lighthouseA boat trip to "the Bishop" is always a memorable one: the most southwesterly point in the UK, it is the last piece of landfall when leaving for America (or the first if you are challenging for the Blue Riband in the opposite direction). For those of us old enough to remember, it featured in the BBC "Blue Peter" programme in the days when lighthouse keepers were relieved by "Breeches buoy".
