Rubjerg Knude Lighting house is an discontinued lighthouse on the shore of the Northern Sea in Rubjerg, in northern Denmark. Light in Rubjerg Knude Lighting house was lit for once the 27. Dec 1900. The lighthouse was designed on the seaside slope’s maximum point 60 measures above sea level and a good 200 measures national.
The lighthouse structure is 23 measures great, and when it was designed there were no huge hills around it. But eventually the sea shifted in nearer and the wind flow blew a lot of sand up from the ledge. The sand accumulated before side of and around the lighthouse, loaded the well and damaged the cooking area home gardens.
To reduce the sand wood grates were set in and lyme lawn and headgear was placed in the dune, but the initiatives went useless as the sand dune grew even larger. At last the sand was so great that at times it was difficult to see the light from the sea. On Aug 1, 1968 the battle was given up and the lighthouse was lit for the before.
Since then the lighthouse has become a popular guest fascination on the Jutland shore. For a period of time, the structures were used as a art gallery and cafe, but constantly moving beaches triggered them to be discontinued as well in 2002. It’s expected that the lighthouse will drop into the sea in 15 to 20 decades time.
