The original keepers were Jeremiah Kent for the front light and John Kent for the rear light. Lightkeeping duties remained in the Kent family until 2002.
The front light is a white square wooden tower 3.7 meters high with sloping sides. The rear is a white tower 11 meters high with sloping sides and a straight base. Both were marked with a red vertical stripe. Both lights have fallen into disrepair and the red stripe is no longer visible on the rear light. The rear light is adjacent to what was a bed and breakfast owned by the Kent family. As of August 2009, this property has changed to private ownership and permission should be asked of the owner as parking is on their property.
