Video: The Most Dangerous Shift Change Ever

By Curious

A video filmed in France shows how workers change shifts in the Le Kéréon lighthouse.

The Le Kereon lighthouse stands on the Reef Men Tensel between Mullein and Ouessanton on the passage of Fromveur in Iroise (off the coast of Brittany). It was built from 1907 to 1916 and bears the name of Charles-Marie Le Dall Kereon, a 19-year-old naval officer guillotined during the terror. The height of the lighthouse is 48 meters with elevation of 44 meters.

The oak floors of the lighthouse are decorated with ebony winds and pink inlaid mahogany. There are Hungarian oak paneling and mosaic in the staircase.

In 2004 the lighthouse was fully automated.
