Since the Federal Government has deemed over 500 lighthouses “surplus”, these iconic structures have been under a death sentence. Coastal communities are rallying to acquire and preserve these historic landmarks. The Medway Area Communities Association is taking on the responsibility of acquiring and maintaining the Medway Head Light in Port Medway.

There have been working lights at Medway Head since 1851. The currently operating pepper-shaker light is the fourth at this site, serving as a tangible link to Port Medway’s heritage as a thriving maritime community.
