Bude-Light

Bude-Light is a very bright oil lamp that works by introducing oxygen into the centre of an Argand burner. It was invented by Sir Goldsworthy Gurney and named after the place where he lived: Bude, Cornwall, United Kingdom. They were used to light the House of Commons for over 50 years

A new light to mark the millennium and to remember Sir Goldsworthy Gurney was commissioned. It was designed by Carole Vincent and Anthony Fanshawe and uses fibre-optics to light up the top. A small seating area is positioned around the light.
