Fog horn sound recordings

Bit of a long shot, but I'm trying to find recordings of old fog horns around the UK, specifically those in the Isle of Man. I grew up hearing the blasts from the Point of Ayre, the northern tip of the island and home to a Stevenson lighthouse. I'm currently producing an infographic for the web detailing the Manx lighthouses, and accompanying fog horn noises would be a nice touch. Any help would be great!

Re: Fog horn sound recordings

Hi Joe, we have a few recordings of fog signals via our website: http://www.alk.org.uk/archive/archive.html

Have you visited http://www.lightkeepersjourney.com/ - Fred Fox runs the website, and was a Lighthouse Keeper and Attendant on the Isle of Man. He may be able to help you further.

Hope this helps :relaxed:
