“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”.

Captain Simon Quail, Master Mariner, is a Liveryman of the Honourable Company of Master Mariners. He joined the Merchant Navy in 1966, serving as a Deck Apprentice with Elder Dempster Lines. ‘Gangway – A Life at Sea’ published by Racing Rabbit Press is his maritime memoir.
