The Portland Breakwater Lighthouse is a functioning lighthouse located at Portland Harbour, Isle of Portland, Dorset, England. It is situated on the southern end of the north-east breakwater. The lighthouse, a white hexagonal cast-iron structure, was established in 1905. Built by Chance Brothers, initially it displayed a white flash every five seconds and had a visible range of 14 nautical miles (26 km; 16 mi). It was also provided with a fog bell, sounding once every ten seconds in foggy weather. The former optic from the lighthouse has been placed in Weymouth Museum.

  • The Portland Breakwater Lighthouse is a functioning lighthouse located at Portland Harbour, Isle of Portland, Dorset, England. It is situated on the southern end of the north-east breakwater. The lighthouse, a white hexagonal cast-iron structure, was established in 1905. Built by Chance Brothers, initially it displayed a white flash every five seconds and had a visible range of 14 nautical miles (26 km; 16 mi). It was also provided with a fog bell, sounding once every ten seconds in foggy weather. The light was originally lit by oil, later changed to gas and is today lit electrically with a modern LED lamp. The light was owned by the Admiralty, but managed by Trinity House (who, until the light was automated in the late 1960s, provided three resident keepers accommodated in a nearby dwelling on the breakwater). The lighthouse was restored and repainted in 1995, prior to the closure of Portland Naval Base; subsequently, ownership of the lighthouse (along with the harbour as a whole) was vested in Portland Port Ltd, and the Portland Harbour Authority took over its management. The lighthouse underwent restoration again in 2016. The lighthouse's current use continues to aid navigation of boats in the area, warning mariners of the breakwaters by giving a white flash every 10 seconds. Surrounding the lighthouse are various defensive buildings such as pillboxes. The former optic from the lighthouse has been placed in Weymouth Museum. (en)
  • Маяк Портленд-Мол (англ. Portland Breakwater Lighthouse) — маяк, расположенный на острове Портленд в графстве Дорсет, Великобритания. Маяк, часто довольно неизвестный для общественности, расположен в торговом порту Портленда на южной оконечности мола. Маяк работает в одной из крупнейших искусственных гаваней в мире. Маяк был построен в 1905 году и продолжает функционировать до сих пор. Он находится на высоте 22 метров и имеет гексагональную структуру. Вся верхняя часть, в том числе окна и купол крыши, была сделана из литой бронзы. Винтовая лестница является узкой и крутой. Вокруг маяка находится небольшой форт с различными оборонительными сооружениями. Маяк был первоначально работающим от нефти в начале 20-го века, после топливо было изменено на газ. Сегодня маяк использует электричество и светит современной светодиодной лампой. (ru)
