Welcome to the Sheringham Point Lighthouse Preservation Society
"A Lighthouse is a beacon of hope; a symbol of human Solidarity." -Gary Geddes, BC poet & author
The Sheringham Point Lighthouse is located in Shirley, British Columbia, Canada, on the West Coast of Vancouver Island - an exposed section of the Juan de Fuca Strait, pounded by westerlies in the summer and easterlies in winter. To assist the shipwrecked during these storms, the West Coast Trail was built. It is hiked every year by thousands of people from all over the world.
The Sheringham Point Lighthouse Preservation Society is dedicated to preserving and protecting the Sheringham Point Light house and other significant foreshore properties in Shirley. The Society's mission is to is document and recognize the historic importance of the lighthouse and to ensure that the lighthouse and its historic route remain accessible and in public hands.
Critical Times Require Quick Action...
Please act today to Preserve and Protect our Lighthouse at Sheringham Point.
The federal government is in process of making decisions about heritage status of the lighthouse, land and access for Sheringham Point. Without your immediate action, the site may be lost forever. The Society has submitted all the proper paperwork and now it is up to the Federal Government to decide whether or not the land and structure is protected under the Lighthouse Heritage Act.
