Join the Interactive The Chance Lighthouse Map Project

Nearly 2,500 lighthouses around the world were fitted with a lens made at the Chance Brothers & Co glassworks in Smethwick. Where did they end up? And how did they shaped the modern world? Dig Ventures are working with the Chance Trust want your help to map their locations, and record the historical and technical detail that bring their stories to life.

Everyone who signs up will be given training, and have the option to join us for a weekly ‘Lighthouse Lesson’. Whether you’re already a lighthouse aficionado, or simply curious about a new aspect of industrial heritage, this is an opportunity to learn new skills and put them to good use.
