Because of its position near the mouth of the River Parrett, and the constantly shifting sands of the Bristol Channel, there has always been a significant risk to shipping in the area. As a result, several lighthouses have been built.
The original lighthouse, known as the Round Tower, was built after the local vicar, either John Goulden in1764 or Walter Harris in 1799, raised a subscription amongst the local population to replace the light on the top of St Andrews Church tower. The four-storey Round Tower was built next to the church. It was taken over and improved by Trinity House in 1815,and operated until 1832, following which the top two storeys were removed.
The 110-foot (34 m) pillar or High Lighthouse was designed and built by Joseph Nelson for Trinity House in1830, and equipped with a paraffin lamp. The ground floor was 5 metres (16 ft)in diameter and the top room 3 metres (9.8 ft). It was automated in 1920. In1992, it was sold to a member of the Rothschild family, who owned it until1996, when it was bought at auction by Patrick O'Hagan. Conversion for residential use included the removal of the 6th floor and the construction of stairs where there had previously only been ladders.A Grade II listed building,it is now available for holiday lets.
