As work begins to take apart Orfordness Lighthouse, we look back to when the lighthouse first opened to the public.
The lighthouse, which dates back to 1792 was sold to its current owner Nicholas Gold following its decommissioning in 2013.
Since then the lighthouse has been open for members of the public to visit.
This video shot in 2014, shows what was on offer for visitors seeing inside the lighthouse for the first time in its over 200 year long history.
Mr Gold was on hand to explain a little more about the history of the iconic Suffolk landmark.
