The ex-Trinity House vessel LV18 is the last surviving example of a manned light vessel in British waters, which has been preserved in its original configuration and restored to a high standard of authenticity.

The LV18 is owned by the Pharos Trust, a charity set up to preserve this important piece of maritime heritage, which is always ready to accept new volunteers with interest and enthusiasm, whether contributing expertise, restoration or maintenance skills, artefacts, ideas or financial donations.
