The Grip Lighthouse (Norwegian: Grip fyrstasjon) is located in Grip in the municipality of Kristiansund in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The lighthouse was built between 1885 and 1888 on the 7-metre (23 ft) high islet of Bratthårskollen, north of Gripholmen.
Grip Lighthouse Wikipedia
The 47-metre (154 ft) tall lighthouse is a red cast iron tower on a white 16-metre (52 ft) granite stonemasonry base. This is the second tallest lighthouse tower in Norway. The lighthouse's range is 19 nautical miles (35 km; 22 mi), and the white, red, or green light, depending on direction, is occulting every eight seconds.
The islet is barren rock with just the lighthouse tower, a concrete boathouse, and two wharves. The lighthouse keepers lived inside the lighthouse tower. A radio beacon was operated between 1947 and 1986, which was replaced with a frequency-agile racon signalling "G" with a range of 4 nm. The lighthouse was electrified in 1932, and is unmanned since it was automated in 1977. In 2000, it became protected as a cultural heritage site. The pilot station was shut down in 1969.
