Cape Egmont Lighthouse
The Cape Egmont Lighthouse was constructed in 1883 by Laurent Perry for the sum of $1,695. As the only coastal light on the 46-mile coast between the lighthouses at West Point and Seacow Head, it is important for fishing and marine interests along the South shore. The 12.4 m (40.7 foot) shingled, square, pyramidal tower had an attached dwelling that was removed in 1958. Severe erosion caused the lighthouse to be moved a short distance inland in April 2000, closer to the tall telecommunications tower and associated building. It overlooks Fishing Cove Harbour.
