Gibbs Hill Lighthouse Nov 09, 2011
Because I you really can't get to this lighthouse from the bus without walking about 10 minutes from the bus stop, I had put off visiting until we came in 2011 and had a private tour. We went there first because our guide Duke said that if we waited, the parking lot would be too full to even get the taxi into. Here we got out and walked around and Bob and I both took photos. It was quite windy. Since the lighthouse is located on the highest point of the island in Southampton Parish, southwest of Hamilton, we could see the Pride across the sound.

I had no intention of climbing it at this time. I might have done were I younger. The lighthouse was damaged in Hurricane Fabian, so climbing may no longer be an option. I might have liked to stay and had tea at the lighthouse, but the restaurant seemed to be closed. . Later we saw the lighthouse again from the road on the way back to the ship.

This is the second oldest cast iron lighthouse in the world built in 1846. (Jamaica's Morant Point Light was built in 1841) The 1-story keeper's house is occupied by a resident caretaker. Operator: Bermuda Department of Marine and Ports Service

In October 2014 Hurricane Gonzalo heavily damaged the roof of the signal station building, but it was repaired and reopened in March 2015. Located on the highest point of the island in Southampton Parish, southwest of Hamilton
