The Lighthouses of France (West)

This page shows the documentation of the Lighthouses of Atlantic facing France. Most of the photos below are set so you can click on the photo of the light to go to it's specific (larger resolution) copy. Each lighthouse name is linked to (in our editorial opinion) the best reference site for that light. I would like to include directions on how to get to these lights. If you know such data, could you eMail me and I'll post it here (with your choice of attribution.)

There has been significant improvements in content by comparing my other data with the Lighthouse Directory prepared by Russ Rowlett (UNC). My thanks to him for providing this basis for understanding. lhDirectory
