Fromveur.

Le phare de la jument (47 mètres) a été construit entre 1904 et 1911 à l'entrée des courants violents du Fromveur, où de nombreux naufrages eurent lieu : entre 1888 et 1904, trente et un navires se sont perdus dans cette zone. Le plus connu de ces naufrages est celui du paquebot anglais Drummond Castle qui heurta la roche des Pierres Vertes (dans l'ouest de l'île de Molène, près d’Ouessant ) dans la nuit du 16 au 17 juin 1896, et où 258 personnes trouvèrent la mort (il n'y eut que trois survivants).

« La Jument » Lighthouse (47m. height) was erected between 1904 and 1911 at the entrance of the violent currents of the Fromveur, where many shipwrecks took place: between 1888 and 1904, thirty-one ships were lost in this area. The best known of these shipwrecks is that of the English liner Drummond Castle, which struck the rock of the Pierres Vertes (in the west of Molène Island, very near from Ouessant ) on the night of June 16 to 17, 1896, and where 258 people found the dead (there were only three survivors).

The sea does look wild here, not hard to imagine shipwrecks on this coast. A dramatic shot with the waves thundering onto the rocks. V
