Hurst Point Lighthouse, Grade II listed, 26m, constructed 1867. Trinity House records show a light was first shown here 29 Sep 1786. Other OS POIs at Hurst Point are 3 cut benchmarks and a flush bracket on the fort (all extant) and a destroyed OSBM bolt on a bldg now washed away by the sea.

direct view to Keyhaven Two. There is also a flush bracket on the remains of the Pump House located on the end of the East Wing of the Castle. Look for a L shaped low brick wall. The bracket faces the sea.

Observed from Yarmouth ferry and Keyhaven Two. Ferry costs 5 return and runs every 20 mins for those wanting to avoid the c. 2 km walk each way.

Hurst Castle Light-House from ferry terminal - just missed one!

An interesting location, lighthouse and Napoleonic fort on the end of long shingle spit. It was flush bracket S0545 that brought me here but I'm happy there's an intersection to log too.
