One day long ago, a fisherman prepared his boat to face the dangerous waters of the Bristol Strait.A storm is brewing.He said goodbye to his wife as usual and went to see his crew.The sea has never given up its harvest without struggling, but the trip will be dangerous.Tides around Burnhamon-The sea was fickle and the ocean was surging, and the fisherman had to keep his wisdom, even for someone as experienced as him.His wife was upset.The storm increased throughout the afternoon to the evening.The wind blew up the waves, and the waves sprayed out of the sea wall near her house.She was worried about her husband and his crew, but they had to make a living and had no choice but to go if they were to provide a good life for their wife and children.In the fierce waters that do not refer to street lights, ships are often stranded and smashed into pieces.She saw evidence of a skeleton on the beach of borrow.She can't just sit and wait for him to go home.Will he go home?The next morning, will it bring the news of knocking on the door and her fear every time the storm turns the waves into gray and brown mud?How will those people find the coast, how will they turn the boat in the right direction, and get the boat around the rocks and mudWhen the Sea throws the banks high and leaves them low?What must she do?There may be no difference but she has to try.She went to the pantry.She took several precious candles from the store, lit one, put it on the window upstairs, and looked at the sea.It burns well, and the light is straight and stable;No checkers killed it.Success -and a Job!The candle saved the lives of her husband and his crew;She was asked to continue her practice.To confirm the importance of her actions, she was later paid by the priest.David Davies.In 1801, after repeated requests for higher light to better help the Bay sail, the priest built the "little round tower", especially the entrance to the Palet River, which was then busy in Bridgewater harbor.This is a circular brick house with a castellated wall with a lamp inside, possibly a coal --The burning grate is shown.The building is now a private residence and can still be seen behind St. Andrew's Church near the Burnham waterfront.With the efforts of the fisherman's wife, Trinity House, the lighthouse authority of England and Wales awarded the priestDavis was licensed to build the lighthouse, and then in 1813 he was given a lease for 100.This gave him the right to charge a fee for the three orders from all coastal vessels passing through the light.In 1829, ownership of the lighthouse was transferred to Trinity College, which left the pastor's office.Davis 681.17 s 3d is better!Burnham-on-The history of the water lighthouse is choppy.On New Year's Eve 1993, the low lighthouse at Burnham Beach was re-activated, marking a new start to the low light after more than 20 years of inactivity, but unfortunately, the high lighthouse has provided it with important services for many years.Burnham-on-Come down from Bridgewater and open for the Bristol Strait.These are dangerous waters full of undercurrent, without the help of mudIf you go from the Burnham promenade to the opposite side of the Hinkley Point nuclear power plant, you can see the apartment and quicksand that are exposed when the ebb tide.The Coast leads north to Berrow and Brean, there are also dangerous quicksand, and finally the Brean Down in front of the Axe Estuary stops dramatically, separating the little cape from Weston at the Axe Estuarysuper-Mare.Both tourists and locals cannot fail to notice the unusual view of Burnham's High and Low Lighthouse --on-Sea;99 feet the noble majesty of the white Pilar Tower and the quaint nine towers-legged \'beach-Cottage structure on the beach.The two lighthouses were launched in 1832.Burnham High and Low Lights designed by Joseph Nelson.The high lights are made of bricks and granite, and the towers are glazed only by the sea;Since the tower is placed a certain distance from the interior, there is no need to see the light from all directions.It has eight floors, including entrance and lantern floors.Round staircase for winding the inner wall;These were removed and replaced by six metal ladders.It was a hard climb, but it was worth the spectacular view from the balcony of the Bay and other places.Unfortunately, access is difficult due to the physical danger of this climb.The building was purchased privately and is now used as a holiday accommodation.The low light is a picturesque square wooden building that stands on nine giant oak stilts and is almost resistant to any water, so it will not be damaged by sea water.There are square windows in the south and west of the tower, and light can be seen through the windows.Step auxiliary passage at the back;These have been removed due to constant vandalism and have now been restored.Standing next to the high water mark, each of the nine legs of the tower was sunk into 16 feet deep sand, keeping the building at a height of 36 feet.Line Them Up!The glare uses a flashing mechanism, while the glare shows a continuously fixed white light and red light.By using these two carefully placed lighthouses, you can find the exact orientation of the deep water channel that enters the mouth of the palet.One ship will put the lights above the other to show the entrance of the passage.During the day, the same principle can be applied by arranging wide vertical red stripes on both towers.Attentive visitors will notice that there is also a stripe on the wall of the town, which has a lamp on the lamppost at the ball and a lamp on the top of the tower of St. Andrew's Church.With the power supply of Burnham in 1927, paraffin steam lamps became redundant and replaced by a 1000 watt electric bulb.This also means that automation is possible.Burnham High Light is the first British lighthouse with no breeder at all and one of the world's earliest unmanned lighthouses.In 1969, the "sector" light is installed under the main lantern.In addition to the flashing white light, this also provides light in three colors-Green, white and redAll of these can be used together to provide the correct bearing for the deep water channel.The lights in the department made the low lights obsolete, so they were discontinued in 1969.However, it resumed construction in 1993 as a first-class listed building.The two cabins at the bottom of the highlights were originally built for the guardians of light;It is now a private residence.In fact, one was occupied by the same owner from 1927 to at least 1994!Over the years, a waiter kept the lighthouse in good working order, regularly observed the lights and maintained the building until it was sold.Sadly, with advanced satellite and radar navigation systems replacing the flash, the 1000-watt navigation beam is no longer needed, and the glare is out of date.Trinity House will be listed for sale on the second-level listed landmark.The Sedgemoor District Council has re-recommended low light as an additional aid to navigation.The nine-The leg landmark itself is a scenic spot, used in the town's heralds, local signs and literary works, and has been photographed by walkers and copied by local artists.When it received a cosmetic productA few years ago, a total of 50 liters of Cuprinol opaque wood finishes were used to protect the structure from the elements!The Ocean offers all the outstanding features for Burnham, and the latest features are the huge and magnificent oceanThe wall was built after the climax of sweeping the defense system in 1981 and entered the town.On 1994, the coastline was hit by rare storms, highs and hurricanes;the sea-Since then, Wal has proved its value many times.The tidal range is 13 m, the largest in Europe and the second largest in the world.Burnham and the sea learn to live togetherThe responsibility for the continuation and maintenance of the Low lighthouse is now borne by the town, and the high lighthouse is maintained once a year.Both high and low lights provide safety for sailors and boats, as well as wealth for dues and visitors;Their continued preservation is an important part of the region's heritage and progressive history.On a clear summer evening with a view of the sea from Burnham --The front is calm, the sea is a mirror of calm.You will see some spectacular skies at sunset.However, in a stormy winter, you will not recognize the same scene when the waves roar and the brown waters rotate with mud.These are the elements that the town people are protected by the sea wall, and are also the elements that are protected by the street lamp.In an era built for preservation.Ships floating in the storm.Crouching on nine oak trees.The sailors warmly welcomed.Best on the beach.Stretch your eyes on the roof and on the Bird's Nest.de-The candle is out and you can rest.New white coat with red striped chest.Burnham's lamp
