Trevose Head Lighthouse is a shore station, built by Thomas and Jacob Olver of Falmouth in 1847, and when first opened it showed two white lights and had no fog horn and a crew of 2 men. A complete revamp of the lighthouse in 1882 resulted in a single rotating white and a crew of 3 men. And another modernisation in 1912 altered the light to a flashing red. Today the lighthouse has a flashing red every 5 seconds with a visibility of 25 miles, it also has a fog horn giving two blasts every 30 seconds. The red light is to be changed to a white.

Sailing the high seas

Everybody sing-a-long! Over the sea, let's go men, we're shoving right off, we're shoving right off again! Nobody knows where or when, we're shoving right off, we're shoving right off again! It may be Shanghai, farewell and good-bye, Sally and Sue, don't be blue, for we'll just be gone for years and years and then, we're shoving right off for home, shoving right for home, shoving right off for home again!
