Heaviest building ever moved in Europe
Belle Tout Lighthouse, Eastbourne, UK
England's fragile chalk cliffs are eroding at a rate of 60 centimetres a year, so it's hardly surprising that it's a lighthouse which holds this record.
Construction of the 850-tonne Belle Tout Lighthouse in Beachy Head was completed in 1834 but coastal erosion soon weakened the building's foundations. In 1999 engineering firm Abbey Pynford helped to move the lighthouse 17 metres back from the cliff edge with the help of 30 computer-controlled jacks which saw the whole building lifted onto tracks and moved back at a speed of around 30 centimetres an hour.
