On Mew Island, a substantial off-shore lighthouse complex built 1882-84, comprising a 37m high lighthouse tower and attendant single-storey buildings, including lighthouse keeper’s quarters, a fog horn engine house, former gasworks compound, contemporary workers houses and a twentieth century look-out tower, all surrounded by original boundary walls. The complex - dominated by the tower, stuccoed in Portland cement painted black with a white band and white lantern and reputedly the tallest tower on the island of Ireland - is a testament to the ambition of the Commissioners of Irish Lights and the skills of the nineteenth century engineers and workmen who built it. The keepers were permanently withdrawn from the station on 29th March 1996 following conversion of the lighthouse to automatic operation.

‘Warrior Rock Light is a lighthouse on Sauvie Island in Oregon, which helps guide river traffic on the Columbia River around the Portland, Oregon area. It once contained the Pacific Northwest's oldest fog bell. It is Oregon's smallest lighthouse, and the only lighthouse, or one of only two lighthouses, still operating in Oregon which are not on the Pacific Ocean.’
