Lighthouse Locations World Wide

There are lighthouses situated all over the world, not all of them have used Chance’s apparatus. We are currently researching with an aim to find where they are. Do you know of a lighthouse that used Chance’s lenses? If you do please get in touch using the contact page.

So far thanks to the research efforts on other websites we have been able to compile a list of lighthouses that have Chance apparatus installed. Again, any findings of lighthouses (particularly ones with Chance apparatus) in the UK or around the world please drop us a line via our contact page.

All photos and links will be gratefully received and we will be sure to credit the source accordingly.

Please do not copy directly from any website without prior permission, although linking to the site directly is always welcome to ensure accuracy. If in any doubt always ask on our contact page.

If you find any errors or omissions please let us know.

Thank you!
