The Keepers' House
Amongst the many stories pertaining to the Keepers' House is that of Annie Weekers, who was the wife of Abraham Weekers, the Head Keeper at the time of the 1890 fire. Abraham perished in the fire, and although Annie was safe in Barnstaple at the time of the disaster, she died shortly afterwards of a mysterious illness and it was claimed by subsequent Keepers that they saw her likeness flitting from room to room in the Keepers' House, calling out "Abraham! Abraham, where are you, my dear?"
The story of Annie Weekers sustains to this day, and many sightseers to the Light claim she has passed them on the moorside tracks around the Light, hurrying to the Keepers' House with her head down, hidden in a black shawl, weeping.
