Toby Chance

Toby is a great-great-great-nephew of the founder of Chance Brothers, Robert Lucas Chance, and a great-great-grandson of Sir James Timmins Chance who more than anyone was responsible for Chance Brothers' pre-eminence in lighthouse lens and equipment manufacture for over 100 years.

Toby is the author of Lighthouses: The Race to Illuminate the World (New Holland Publishers, 2008), a history of Chance Brothers' endeavours to standardise and modernise lighthouse lenses and the part the company played in the development of modern global maritime safety.
