New marine paint trialled on Burnham-On-Sea's famous lighthouse

Burnham-On-Sea's iconic lighthouse has been given a fresh coat of a specialised marine paint this week, which should mean it won't have to be decorated as frequently in the future.

Contractors from Sedgemoor District Council have been using a cherry picker and other equipment to paint the famous nine-legged wooden building, as pictured here.

"Painting has been taking place this week and, until now, it's always been done every three years," council spokeswoman Claire Faun told

"However, we are currently trialling a new marine paint that's used on other lighthouses which will hopefully mean it won't have to be decorated so often."
