On the way to anda lighthouse


Anda Lighthouse (Norwegian: Anda fyrstasjon) is a lighthouse on the island of Anden in the municipality of Øksnes in Nordland county, Norway. The lighthouse was built in 1932 and it was the last new lighthouse that was built in Norway. When it was automated in 1987, it was the last manned lighthouse station in the country. The lighthouse is square and of concrete construction, standing 16 metres (52 ft) tall.

The occulting light is located on top, at an elevation of about 49 metres (161 ft). The lighthouse emits a racon signal "T". The 55,200 candela light flashes every six seconds. The lighthouse is state-owned, and has historic value as an example of period concrete construction. Although it has been modernised, many original elements remain. The ruins of an outhouse lie nearby.
