THE lighthouse which was once home to the founding father of global conservation will be open to the public today and tomorrow.

People will be able to have a look round the lighthouse between 11am and 4pm, with admission costing �3 for adults and �1.50 for children.
The lighthouse will also open next weekend and on Bank Holiday Monday, August 29.
