The lighthouse building itself was originally known as the Lower South Foreland Lighthouse and the site’s usage for such a purpose dates back as far as 1367. The first towers were built in 1635 and the cost of building the current tower – along with the Upper South Foreland Lighthouse – was £4409 4s 3d in 1843. The lower light was decommissioned in 1904 after the sands shifted whilst the upper light continued in operation until 1988. A scene in the 1967 horror film The Shuttered Room starring Oliver Reed and Flora Robson was shot at the lower lighthouse.

 

£4 million is sought for The South Foreland Estate through agents Strutt & Parker.
