More Information
Rathlin Island, an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ along the Antrim Coast and Glens and is the most northerly inhabited offshore point of Northern Ireland measuring 4 miles from east to west, and 2.5 miles from north to south. It is also a special area of conservation and the RSPB has a nature reserve here offering spectacular views of the tens of thousands of birds which have made Rathlin their home. It is also home to three lighthouses. The West Lighthouse, an  upside-down light, proved to be a major feat of engineering when it was built between 1912 and 1917. The top of Kebble Point was too high for the light to be effective, so it had to be placed some way down the cliff. The works needed a cable tramway and a pier, as well as the road across Kebble. The work cost £400,000 in 1912, equivalent to an amazing £17 million today. Photography by Tom McDonnell.

This is truly an outstanding quality poster. It is printed on Fuji crystal archive photographic paper and is by no means a flimsy poster.
