La Corbière lighthouse has a new LED light system replacing its old conventional incandescent lamp.
The LED lamp was installed after a survey of the lighthouse showed the mercury that helped the old lantern rotate could be a health hazard.
The lighthouse, built in 1874, originally used a wick burning oil lamp. After 145 years and various changes Corbière has received its latest revamp.
