Guiding Lights: 500 Years Of Trinity House And Safety At SeaFive hundred years ago, a fraternity of London mariners was given a charter by Henry VIII and became the Corporation of Trinity House - with instructions to improve the safety of navigation on the Thames. Since then, Trinity House has looked after pilotage, buoys, beacons and lightships and has become the Lighthouse Authority for England, Wales and the Channel Islands. The work of Trinity House over the last 500 years has prevented countless shipwrecks and immense loss of life, and its employees have shown great skill, bravery and endurance. While Trinity House's aims have remained constant its methods of achieving them have changed dramatically as new technology is adopted and developed. This small gallery at the National Maritime Museum displays objects and stories from throughout the organisation's history as well as looking to the future as Trinity House continues to work 'for the benefit and safety of all mariners'.

 

About National Maritime Museum

Located in the heart of Greenwich, the National Maritime Museum has a monumental mission: to showcase mankind's association with the sea. The collection dates back to 1823 when a National Gallery of Naval Art was established, and the museum is housed in an elegant building which used to be an asylum.
