About Trinity House... the oldest auction house in Penzance!...
Trinity House was built in the mid-19th century on the land aquired by Trinity House to build the Wolf Rock lighthouse which still stands off the southern coast of Cornwall.
Built as a depot for the servicing of the lighthouses, lightships & maritime buoys around the coast of the South West. It became redundant with the automation of lighthouses & the introduction of buoy servicing on board Trinity House vessels.
After a brief period as The Lighthouse Centre Museum, it remained empty before being rescued, restored & preserved by the current owners.
