Flamborough’s old chalk tower lighthouse could eventually open to the public on special occasions as part of a project to highlight one of the area’s most distinctive buildings.

A new information board has been unveiled at the tower, which was built almost 350 years ago, and stands a stone’s throw from the current lighthouse.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council and the Friends of the Chalk Tower group have teamed up to fund the board which looks at its history.

Martin Burnhill, the council’s senior facilities manager (coastal), said: “This is a great example of the way the council can interpret historic buildings with the support of the Friends, who in turn will be able to seek additional grant funding for the further restoration and improved access to the tower.

“We wanted to let people know the history of this well-known and much-loved building.”
