Lepe Lighthouse - small but perfectly formed

Today, we went for a little walk near Lepe and one of the landmarks was the Lepe lighthouse. This is not a giant fence or a trick of perspective, the lighthouse really is tiny! Quite pretty, though. The odd thing, it's set back in the trees, so isn't very visible. I thought that maybe the trees had grown up since it was built and it was no longer in use but it was actually only built in 2000. It could be deliberate, though. It was built to help boats get into the narrow entrance to Beaulieu River, so I guess it only needs to be visible from a specific direction.
