The oldest lighthouse in the UK is called the Smeaton's Tower, located in Plymouth on the southern coast near Eddystone rocks. Built in 1756, its light was first lit in 1759 and it is classed as the UK's oldest lighthouse. However, it is no longer used as a lighthouse, but as a tourist attraction and a memorial to its builder. It was in use until 1877, but it was (largely) dismantled and rebuilt on Plymouth Hoe, Plymouth, when it was discovered that Eddystone Rocks, upon which it stood, were eroding.

The Ocracoke Lighthouse is North Carolina's oldest operating lighthouse. The current tower was built in 1823 by Noah Porter from Massachusetts for $11,359.35. In 1798, a wooden pyramid-shaped tower was built to help mariners to navigate the passage between Ocracoke and Portsmouth Islands. However, the light was inadequate, and the sandbars changed so much that by 1818 the lighthouse was a mile away from the inlet. Finally, during a terrible storm, the keepers cottage and lighthouse were struck by lightning and completely destroyed. In 1822, the federal government purchased two acres of land on Ocracoke Island where the present lighthouse now stands.
