The Shambles
The Shambles is a bank with several shoal heads three miles East of Portland Bill which should be avoided at all times. In response to numerous requests from the Admiralty and shipowners, Trinity House placed two navigation buoys over the bank in 1824 which were later replaced by a lightvessel in 1859. Today the Shambles Bank is marked by the red sector light from Portland Bill lighthouse and lighted buoys at the east and western extremes of the bank.
