Alnes Lighthouse, Giske

Utenfor Ålesund finner vi Giske kommune og her Alnes fyr samt et mindre tettsted av samme navn.
Outside Ålesund we find the community of Giske, and here the Alnes Lighthouse and a small settlement of the same name.

IMG_1861 [Skjermoppløsning]Alnes fyr!  Alnes fyr ligger på nordvestsiden av Godøy ca 10 km vest av Ålesund. Fyret ble engang opprettet i privat regi i 1853, men ble senere overtatt av Staten i 1869.
Fyret er 36 meter høyt og har en rekkevidde på ca 16 nautiske mil.
I 1982 ble fyret automatisert (og fraflyttet)

Alnes Lighthouse is located on the northwestern side of ‘Godøy’ about 6,5 miles west of Ålesund. Orignally the lighthouse was established privately in 1853, but was later taken over by the state of Norway (1869). The lighthouse stands 119 feet high and the light reaches out 16,6 nautical miles!  In 1982 the lighthouse was automated (and left).
