About this event

Nigel Overton, Curator of Maritime History, Plymouth City Museum and Art GallerySmeaton’s Tower is best known, but, in their own way, each of the four (or was it five?) Eddystone Lighthouses were great achievements. Was Smeaton’s lighthouse only replaced because it was in danger of collapse? The talk will lay to rest a few established myths about Henry Winstanley, John Rudyerd, Smeaton and others.
