Godrevy Lighthouse as the sun starts to set, with the sky lit up pink, is set in the tranquil landscape on Godrevy Island in St Ives Bay, Cornwall, England. A beautiful Cornish landmark set amidst rocks and sea of Godrevy Towans, sandy beaches near the Cornish town of Hayle. Standing approximately 300 metres off Godrevy Head, it marks the Stones reef, which has been a hazard to shipping for centuries. It was built in 1858–1859 by Trinity House in 1859 marking a dangerous reef off St. Ives called the Stones; the light was moved to an adjacent steel structure. Godrevy lighthouse was inspiration for Virginia Woolf's novel To The Lighthouse. Can be seen from the South west coast path. It is a very tranquil area with many rugged rocks and the large expanse of a sandy beach.
