Frederick A. Winkfield,(Fl. 1873 - 1920).
Recommended by the Royal Society, civil engineer John Smeaton modelled the shape on an oak tree, built of granite blocks. Construction started in 1756 and the light was first lit on 16 October 1759.
It remained in use until 1877 when erosion to the rocks under the lighthouse caused it to shake from side to side whenever large waves hit.
