Rather than replicating the original conical structure, Mackereth accessed her inner Brunelleschi to conjure up a wonderful glazed dome. Matt Gibberd, The World of Interiors

The Lighthouse

This eighteenth century lighthouse was featured in the original text of Robinson Crusoe. It has been sensitively converted for residential use with a new single-storey glass and timber extension and a newly landscaped garden.

A new steel and glass lantern with a domed roof has been added at the top of the tower with curved wrap-around seating and a sleeping platform with dramatic 360-degree panoramic views of the Norfolk countryside, the sandy beach and the North Sea beyond.
