Overview
More
For 175 years Nash Point lighthouse, designed by James Walker, the Engineer-in-Chief to Trinity House, has been keeping the mariner safe of Nash Sands, the sandbanks off the point at the entrance to the Bristol Channel. In 1977 a rare plant, the tuberous thistle (Cirsium Tuberosum), was found growing around the lighthouse. Nash Point was the last manned lighthouse in Wales. The lighthouse keepers left on 5 August 1998. Nash Point formally opened its doors to the public in 2007 so why not come along and see this wonderful lighthouse and the stunning scenery around about it from a new perspective? Fog Signal The fog signal is sounded at 14.00 On the first Saturday and third Sunday of each month, weather conditions permitting. Tours of Nash Point are organised under licence from the Corporation of Trinity House.

The lighthouse is very interesting, they will put the fog horn on when you are for you to hear it. The parking is on top of the cliff and there is a charge to park there, also, normally a small shop is open as well.

Lots of parking. Beautiful coastal walk, you can walk to lantwit major beach, you walk through small woodland areas, open coastal paths and up and down hills. Worth a visit. Highly recommend.
