History

Lightship 95 was built in the 1930s by Trinity House, and spent its working life providing a safety beacon around British waters, notably around the Goodwin Sands in the English Channel. In the 1990s it was fitted out with a large solar array - the first lightship to be powered by renewable energy. It was decommissioned in 2003 and lovingly converted to a world-class recording studio by Ben Phillips, and has hosted some of the world’s finest recording artists since it opened its’ doors in 2008.
