Membership is open to everyone

Mull of Galloway



The Association of Lighthouse Keepers provides a forum for everyone interested in lighthouses, lightships and maritime aids to navigation. Despite its name, being a lighthouse keeper is not a requirement for joining the Association, although a number of serving and former keepers are members. Whatever your interest in lighthouses, you can join the ALK!

The ALK holds a large archive of lighthouse related material, and the goal of the Association is to establish a study centre available to members. In striving towards this end, the ALK has helped and advised the setting up of display material at lighthouses open to the public around the UK.

The Association has a wealth of expertise and works with other lighthouse-related societies and organisations, both nationally and internationally. Members come from right across the globe, ranging from Australia to the USA and across Europe.

Members are welcome to attend any meeting or activity. Whatever your interest, background, age or ability, you can be assured of a warm welcome.
