The Lighthouses of Norway (Southwest)

This page shows the documentation of the Lighthouses of Southwest Norway. You can always click on the photo of the light to go to a specific (larger resolution) copy. Each lighthouse name is linked to (in our editorial opinion) the best reference site for that light. I would like to include directions on how to get to these lights. If you know such data, could you eMail me and I'll post it here (with your choice of attribution.) mailme

There has been significant usage of the Lighthouse Directory prepared by Russ Rowlett (UNC). lhDirectory. Lighthouse coord

 Lighthouse coordinates and orange reference numbers are via Norsk Fyr.  My thanks to them for providing this basis for understanding. p6
