Trinity House is the General Lighthouse Authority for England, Wales and the Channel Islands. Trinity House is financed from light dues levied on commercial vessels calling at ports in the British Isles and covering a sea area from Berwick upon Tweed on the North East coast, to the Solway Firth in the North West, and including the Channel Islands and Gibraltar. The task of Trinity House is to deliver a reliable, efficient and cost effective “Aids to Navigation Service” for the benefit and safety of all mariners. We provide a mix of 600 visual, audible, electronic, fixed and floating Aids to Navigation. These range from the storm lashed lighthouses like Bishop Rock in the Western Approaches, the famous Eddystone and Beachy Head Lighthouses, light vessels and buoys marking the Dover Strait, (one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world), to modern radio and radar services together with a satellite based global positioning system (DGPS). Trinity House also has a statutory
duty to mark and remove wrecks, which are a danger to navigation.
