I decided to start in Scandinavia this week with the 300th Anniversary of the Swedish Lighthouse Service commemorated in 1969.
Travelling by the southernmost tip of mainland Norway on the peninsula Neset you past the country's oldest lighthouse - built in 1655.

Beachy Head is one of England's famous lighthouses and it appeared in a set commemorating Safety at Sea on 18 June 1985.

Unfortunately the chart is obscured by the postmark.
Les Casquets lighthouse in the Channel Islands appears on a Guernsey stamp issued on 10 February 1976. The Lighthouse was built in 1723.
