Powell's Head Light Beacon

Powell's Head Lighthouse is located near the entrance to Trepassey Harbour. The original iron tower built in 1902 was replaced by this square wooden structure forming one corner of the fog alarm building. Although not as dramatic as older Newfoundland lighthouses, this small lighthouse all painted in white with a red roof and a red octagonal dome lantern does make a pretty picture. It's flashing white light shining from a dioptic lens can be seen for up to 12 nautical miles at sea.
