“Sentinels against the Storm”
A Talk by Simon Quail
October 6th at 7.30 p.m. at Storrington Museum,
Old School, School Lane, Storrington RH20 4LL.
“How did they do it? Why did they? I am fascinated by how they were constructed in the face of storms and the surge of the sea. I was a navigator for nearly twenty years, many of them around the dangerous coastlines of northern Scotland. I know these light towers from two perspectives – from the sea and from the land. Assisted with an array of historic and original images I paint pictures in words to cast light on the fascinating story those brilliant Stevenson engineers and their elegant creations”.
