Andrew George Meets Trinity House Officials

Bishop Rock lighthouse. MP Andrew George says it's getting dimmer.

The islands’ Member of Parliament has met with senior executives of Trinity House to discuss the upkeep of Bishop Rock, Round Island and other lighthouses and daymarks around Scilly and West Cornwall.

Andrew George told us that he feels the Bishop Rock beam seems reduced in strength, but Trinity House say they have no plans to change operations.

Andrew said that the organisation is committed to maintaining both the fog and light alerts.

Trinity House’s engineering and operations manager, Simon Milyard, and their legal manager, John Price, also shared plans to mark the 500th anniversary of the organisation in 2014 with the MP.
