In the 1990s Burnham High Lighthouse was deactivated and sold by Trinity House. We understand it was bought by a member of the Rothschild Family. Thereafter around 1996 it changed hands to the current owner.

After two decades of careful restoration and conversion, plus several years use as a holiday letting business, the present owner has decided to place this magnificent lighthouse tower for sale at offers over £525,000.

Burnham High Lighthouse was designed and built by Joseph Nelson for Trinity House, in the 1830s. The tower was equipped with a paraffin lamp, which shone through a half-gallery under a window. Burnham High Tower was used in conjunction with the Low Lighthouse which is still operating. The latter replaced the original Roundhouse Tower Lighthouse.
