Last Lighthouse Keeper

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:21 pm on 18 February 2013

Grant Hinchcliff was the very last lighthouse keeper at the small Wairarapa beach town of Castlepoint. He manned the lighthouse there from 1972 to 1988, when it became automated. He's since moved to Sydney, but came back in New Zealand to celebrate the 100 year centenary of the Castlepoint lighthouse.
