France has a long coastline and a rich lighthouse heritage. This page lists lighthouses of the northernmost part of the country, including the départements of Somme, Pas de Calais, and Nord. This region faces the Pas de Calais (Strait of Dover) and its approaches from La Manche (the English Channel) to the west and from the North Sea to the north.
A lighthouse is a tower, building, or other type of structure designed to emit light from a system of lamps and lenses and used as an aid to navigation for maritime pilots at sea or on inland waterways. Lighthouses mark dangerous coastlines, hazardous shoals , reefs , safe entries to harbors, and can also assist in aerial navigation. Once widely used, the number of operational lighthouses has declined due to the expense of maintenance and replacement by modern electronic navigational systems. [ edit ] Lighthouse technology
