The Chairwoman of Lighthouse Society closes Märket lighthouse for wintertime.


Last group left Märket reef 13.10.2013. They checked that all things were in order and left the lighthouse ready for next spring. New sauna building on the 1.floor level of lighthouse will be finished next season, and bring longed-for accommondation to the lighthouse keepers.

Thanks for those over 80 volunteers that worked hard on the lighthouse during this season. Patience, endurance, skill, and joy of life brought Märket reef still closer for its new future.
