Title The Bude Light 2000 Built in 2000 as a millennium tribute to Sir Goldsworthy Gurney (1793-1875), a prolific Cornish inventor. 30 feet high, it was designed by Carole Vincent and Anthony Fanshawe, and uses fibre optics to light up at night. Gurney invented the Bude Light, a brilliant light created by introducing oxygen into the centre of a gas or oil flame, in 1830. It was used in the Houses of Parliament, for lighthouses, and to illuminate Gurney's house, now Bude Castle. In the background is Ergue-Gaberic Way, and on the right are 503207 and 489885.
