Why "Bishop Rock" ?
At Bishop Rock, our story is one of seeing farther, of looking out past the horizon to protect your most critical inventions, and to help keep you on the lookout for coming danger.
A lighthouse evokes this story that we want to tell -- the lonely sentinel on the lookout for danger ahead. Protecting ships, travellers and cargo.
Bishop Rock is a lighthouse perched on a tiny spit of rock about 28 miles to the southwest of Great Britain. It is the first danger to vessels making the transatlantic voyage from North America to the harbors of Britain. Since 1858, the Bishop Rock Lighthouse has stood over the dangerous waters of the North Atlantic, lighting the way to the safe harbors ahead.
