This edition of the Admiralty List of Lights and Fog Signals contains the latest information received by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO) at time of printing. This Volume is reissued annually and its publication is announced in Part 1 of the Admiralty Notice to Mariners (NMs).
Fourteen regional volumes provide comprehensive details and world-wide coverage of all fixed lights, fog signals and some lit floating marks of navigational significance.
The ADMIRALTY List of Lights (or its digital equivalent) should always be consulted whenever full details of a light are required. The List of Lights is not the authority for geographical positions which are only included as an approximation.
Each light object, Aid to Navigation (AtoN), is fully and clearly described including the number, name, characteristics, structure description, elevation, height and amplifying remarks.
The ADMIRALTY List of Lights also contains full details of complex features as well as information concerning multiple lights and other AtoNs co-located on the same structure or nearby.
