Update On Hereford Inlet Lighthouse’s Beacon! Wildwood Writer June 29, 2018 Articles, Wildwood Articles 1616 Update On Hereford Inlet Lighthouse’s Beacon! Update On Hereford Inlet Lighthouse’s Beacon! A month ago we first reported that the rotating beacon at the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse had a malfunction. Use the link below to read that story. Hereford Inlet Lighthouse Got A New Beacon In a quick fix the U.S. Coast Guard replaced the rotating beacon with a flashing LED lamp. Due to the U.S. Coast Guard being the operators of the light, they told the city that a replacement for the rotating beacon would be an eight to twelve week wait. In a city council meeting, North Wildwood’s Scott Jett, said that the U.S. Coast Guard will be expediting the repair time on the beacon. There is no set date but we are glad that the repairs will be done faster! We went ahead and toured the lighthouse and filmed it for you! Check out our tour below! Please Subscribe!
