    Lighthouse Bornrif

    by rolphbronkhorst Written Aug 6, 2014

    Visit Amelands lighthouse the Bornrif.

    The lighthouse was build in 1880 on the order of King Willem III. The tower is designed by Quirinus Harder. Harder designed towers from cast iron which was new in the 19th century.

    On 10 May 1881 the lights were ignited for the first time.
    The optics are the same as from the old "Westhoofd" at Goeree, with 3 flashes each 15 seconds.

    Liightsource and strength:
    1881: 4 x Petroleum light / 24.000 c.
    1911: Pharline light / 120.000 c.
    1923: Electric light / 307.000 c
    1952: Electric light / 4.400.000 c

    The lighthouse is each day open for public. Since 2005 the lighthouse is no longer permanent manned.
