Notes:

The keeper's cottages are holiday destinations (let by Rural Retreats. ) But you need to be prepared to cope with the noise of the fog signal. It will go off when there are sea mists as well as fog.

Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Grid or page and any errors that you discover.
