The Sheringham Point Lighthouse Preservation Society is dedicated to preserving and protecting the Sheringham Point Lighthouse and other significant foreshore properties in Shirley. The Society’s mission is to is document and recognize the historic importance of the lighthouse and to ensure that the lighthouse and its historic route remain accessible and open to the public.

 

The Lighthouse

The Sheringham Point Lighthouse is located in Shirley, British Columbia, Canada, on the West Coast of Vancouver Island – an exposed section of the Juan de Fuca Strait, pounded by westerlies in the summer and easterlies in the winter. To assist shipwrecked mariners during these storms, the West Coast Trail was built. It is hiked every year by thousands of people from all over the world.

 

Critical Times Require Quick Action…

Please act today to Preserve and Protect our Lighthouse at Sheringham Point.

From time to time, the Society needs the help of its Members and Supporters to TAKE URGENT ACTION in order to help us move forward with our plans to fully and effectively protect and preserve the Sheringham Point Lighthouse and its surrounding lands.  Please visit our TAKE ACTION page for more details on current activities.

We need your help today to prevent proposed changes in the location of the public access as well as changes to the trail management that are being considered by the Capital Regional District. These proposed changes will make it much more difficult to access the site, and will make it impossible for some.  Your help is needed to ensure that we can maintain ongoing reasonable public access to this remarkable and important heritage site.  Please click here to sign our petition and send your message to the CRD.

 

 

Your help TODAY will make the difference.
